  • 2 cans black beans drained and rinsed
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp. flax meal+5 tbsp. water)
  • ½ cup rolled oats ground
  • ½ bell pepper finely diced
  • ¼ cup red onion finely diced
  • 1 small carrot shredded
  • ½ jalapeño minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. ground pepper
  • 2-4 tbsp. olive oil


  • 1 10 oz tub plain hummus
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobe

For Serving

  • Lettuce
  • Sliced Tomato
  • Sliced Red onion
  • Buns


  • In a small bowl make your flax egg. Add your ground flax and water and stir, set aside.
  • Now prep your veggies. Dice your bell pepper and onion, mince your jalapeño and garlic, chop your cilantro, shred your carrot and set aside.
  • Into a medium sized bowl add your black beans. Mash them well with a fork or potato masher. You will want most of the black beans to be mashed leaving about 1/4 still partially whole.
  • To the bean mixture add your cumin, salt and pepper and mix together.
  • Now add your cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, bell pepper and carrot and mix until well incorporated.
  • Place your oats into a food processor or blender and pulse until your oats are ground but not fully a fine flour like texture.
  • Add the flax egg and oats to your bean mixture and mix well. Now allow the mixture to set for five minutes. This helps the beans to absorb your binders and stay together better. Do not skip this step.
  • Place a large skillet on the stovetop over medium heat and add about 2 tbsp. of olive oil.
  • Take about 1/2 cup of your bean mixture and form into a thick patty about 3/4-1 inch in thickness. Place into the pan and cook on each side until golden brown and firm, about 4-5 minutes per side. Depending on the size of your pan and how many burgers you can cook at once you may need to add more oil.
  • Into a food processor or blender add your hummus and chipotle pepper. Blend or pulse until combined.
  • Prepare your serving veggies. Slice your tomato and onion and cut your lettuce.
  • Now assemble your burgers. Onto your bun smear the hummus, top with your burger, then tomato, onion and lettuce.
  • Enjoy!


  • If you would like to bake these you can do so by placing them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or lightly grease your pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes carefully flipping half way through.
  • These do freeze well and are best reheated on the stovetop or in the oven. They can be microwaved however, they will be a little softer in texture when reheated with this method.
  • You can also use the food processor to make your bean mixture. Just ensure you do not over process your beans or the burgers will be too mushy and not hold together well. I would recommend keeping about 1/4 of the beans out of the processor and mixing them into the processed mixture.
