Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 small or 4 large patties
  • 1 can black beans, mashed with the back of a spoon (you don't want it pureed)
  • 3 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 2 heaping Tbsp. gluten free flour (I used sprouted black bean flour and it worked beautifully)
  • 1 Tbsp. flax seed meal, already ground + 3 Tbsp. water, allow to sit for 5-7 min until thickened
  • ¼ red onion, diced
  • ¼ tsp cumin powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  1. Mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl until a nice patty can be formed.
  2. Create 8 small (or 4 large) patties between your hands. If the dough is not sticking together, add another tablespoon of flour.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the patties on both sides (approx 5 min per side).
  4. Serve on mini buns and garnish with whatever you want!

  3. can these be frozen and reheated at a later date?

    • I have not tried freezing them just because I eat it immediately and/or place it in the fridge but I think it could work, Mika!
