4-ingredient Tuna Avocado Cakes for an easy and delicious Whole30 recipe!

Lunch. Oh lunch. I personally can eat the same thing every single day and be happy. Jord on the other hand gets quite bored, quite easily and cannot. To be honest I am pretty envious of that because eating the same thing everyday isn’t exactly good for us (well at least females). I have been reading a ton about female hormones thanks to Alisa Vitti’s book Woman Code, and my life has officially change.

More to come there, but she has taught me the importance of switching up your foods a bit each week.

Jord absolutely loves taking tuna salad though a couple days a week. At first I was so against canned tuna because the mercury levels but when I learned that Safe Catch is super low in mercury (lowest out of any brand), we started to stock up. Then I told my mom and brother who love tuna and now they can’t stop eating Safe Catch.

Safe Catch also saved my sanity during J’s Whole30 because their tuna is Whole30-approved. Tuna is so underrated though if you ask me. There is so much you can do with a can of tuna. These 4-ingredient Avocado Tuna Cakes are our latest fav.

Now I only will eat or buy Safe Catch tuna. The do tuna differently. It is all hand cut and packed premium tuna steaks, slow cooked to perfection and all the omega3 oils and nutrients are still there unlike most cans of tuna. It is also certified paleo and non-GMO.

These Avocado Tuna Cakes are amazing on top of a salad, your favorite grain, anything. They are so easy to make and so so flavorful. When you are done eating them, try those Sushi Tuna Stacks and Spicy Thai Tuna Burgers too.


Safe Catch Tuna (any variety)


Almond flour (I haven’t tested another flour)

Avocado mayo (or your preferred mayo)


  • After making the patties, do not skip the step of refrigerating the cakes before cooking, it is key!
  • You can sub any mayo you prefer here, I love using avocado mayo
  • This test best when you enjoy right after cooking (or same day)
