Black Bean Sliders

  • Author: Fork & Beans
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 8 small or 4 large patties 1x


  • 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
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 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!
