The Ultimate Black Bean Burgers


Is it really summer without a cook out? These easy homemade black bean burgers may just be my favorite thing to put on the grill! They're thick, sturdy, and packed with flavor. Trust me when I say these aren't your typical veggie burger, they're even better! Best enjoyed sandwiched in between Angelic Bakehouse's sprouted grain buns


  • 1 package Angelic Bakehouse Sprouted Grain Buns
  • 2 14-oz cans black beans, drained, rinsed, and dried
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup red and green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1/2 cup diced mushrooms, washed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder (optional, for heat)
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup (optional)
  • Burger toppings of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.  Drain and rinse the black beans and let them sit in a colander to dry
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet with the peppers, onion, mushrooms, and garlic; cook until soft
  3. In a food processor (or by hand in a mixing bowl) add the cooked vegetables, oat flour, egg, seasonings, and ketchup (if using).  Pulse the mixture a couple times to mix or mash with back of fork in a mixing bowl
  4. Add the dried black beans and pulse a few more times, leaving some chunks of black beans (this can also be done with the back of a fork)
  5. Scoop the mixture into patties with a large cookie scoop and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  You should get about 8 patties
  6. If grilling, place patties on grill for 5 - 6 minutes on each side.  If baking, bake in oven for 10 - 12 minutes on each side
  7. Sandwich the patties inside an Angelic Bakehouse sprouted grain bun and top with desired burger toppings
