On my recent trip to Florida I fell back in love with crab cakes. I haven’t had them for awhile but once I tried them again I was reminded of all the great elements – delicious seafood, crispy outside, the mixture of flavours etc. etc. I wanted to make my own version in small bite sized portions as an appetizer for a friend who is gluten intolerant. With more friends on a gluten-free diet I make sure to keep gluten free options on hand. Breton is now offering gluten-free options that are certified by the Canadian Celiac Association. My new favourites are the Breton Bean crackers in White Bean with Salt & Pepper I love the flavour and with 3g fibre and 2g protein per serving they add fibre and protein to every snack.
Gluten Free Mini Crab Cakes
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 crab meat (2x120g cans)
1/3 cup crushed Breton White Bean with Salt & Pepper
2 green onions (white and green) finely chopped
Half a jalapeño seeded and finely diced
3 tbsp Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise)
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
Dash of Tabasco
Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
In a large bowl mix together crab, Miracle Whip, green onion, jalapeños, egg, lemon juice and Tabasco. In a small bowl combine half of the cracker crumbs (set rest aside for coating), dry mustard, Old Bay seasoning. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.
In a small saucepan add coconut oil and heat on medium-high until melted. Roll 2 tbsp of crab cracker crumbs and fry for 1-2 mins each side or until brown. Remove from oil and set on rack to cool. Serve on top of a Breton White Bean with Salt & Pepper cracker with baby kale and top with Old Bay Sauce. (2 tbsp Miracle Whip + 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning + 1 tsp lemon juice) and a dollop of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.
Mini crab cakes that are the perfect appetizer for any party. Small bites and so fun to serve!

I love that people who are not able to eat gluten can now enjoy the tender-crisp texture and wholesome taste of the original Breton with two NEW gluten-free options: Breton Bean Crackers (in White Bean with Salt & Pepper and Black Bean with Onion & Garlic) and Breton Popped! Beans cracker chips (in Sweet Chili Cheddar and Sea Salt & Pepper). The Breton Popped! Cracker chips are great for snacking, are made with a blend of chickpea and red bean and give you 2g of fibre and 2g of protein per serving. Plus you can feel confident in Breton’s ‘Made Better’ promise guarantee to have no preservatives or artificial flavours/colours and beans are the #1 ingredient!
