  1. In a medium mixing bowl, toss together the tuna, onions, coconut flour, pepper, salt, garlic powder and oregano. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, mustard, lemon juice, and oil.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into the tuna mixture and stir thoroughly to combine. It will be too liquid at first, but will reach a cookie dough-like consistency as the coconut flour absorbs some of the moisture.
  4. Preheat 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Divide the mixture into five heaping-quarter-cup spheres, then press down gently into a disk.
  5. Fry until crisp (3-4 minutes), then flip, cover the pan and fry until the other side is dark golden and crisp and the centers of the burgers have puffed up a bit, another 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and serve immediately, topped with olive tapenade, arugula and tomato slices - on a bun, if you prefer.


Alternately, you can cook them on a grill. Olive tapenade recipes can be found here: http://acleanbake.com/anchovy-free-olive-tapenade/
