  • 1 medium sweet potato about 1-1½ cups mashed
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup red onion diced
  • 1 flax egg 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2 tablespoons water
  • ¾ cup gluten-free oats ground into flour (or more as needed)
  • ¾ cup quinoa cooked
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin ground
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Peel and chop the sweet potato into 1-inch cubes. Transfer to a pot and cover with 1 inch of water. Boil for 10-15 minutes until fork tender.
  • Drain the sweet potatoes and return them to the hot pot. Add the black beans and mash with a fork until the sweet potatoes are mostly mashed, but some beans still remain whole. Add the remaining ingredients and mix to form a dough. If the dough seems too wet, add a little more oat flour. The dough should be semi-sticky and should be easy to shape into patties.
  • Shape into 8 patties and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Remove the baking sheet from the refrigerator and bake the burgers on the center rack for 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Cool for 5 minutes, then serve.
