Black Bean Sliders - Fork & Beans

Black Bean Sliders Recipe

Gluten, egg, and dairy-free

Makes 8-10 sliders or 4 regular-sized patties


  • 1 can black beans, mashed with the back of a spoon (you don’t want it too pureed)
  • 3 TB old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 heaping TB flour (I used sprouted black bean flour from WF and it worked beautifully!)
  • 1 Tb chia seed, already ground + 2 Tb water, allow to sit for 5-7 min until thickened
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

**I made my own hamburger buns which tasted good but ended up a little denser than hoped for. If you want the recipe, I am more than happy to post it but it still needs fixing.


  1. Mix together all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. Form into small patties.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown the patties on both sides (approx 5 min).
