Black Bean Burgers

Black bean burgers are perfect for that weekend barbeque or even during the week. You are gonna love this easy dinner recipe!

The black bean burgers are super easy and delicious. You can’t go wrong when you serve these. I serve them in a lettuce wrap or just eat them with a fork. Either way is amazing!

Black beans are a delicious source of folate and fiber that help with your digestive tract. Peppers are very high in vitamin C and are an excellent antioxidant. The oats have manganese and are a delicious whole grain. Combine them together and you have a dinner for champions!


Black Bean Burgers

Prep Time
Total Time


  • 2 cups cooked black beans (2 15-ounce cans), drained & rinsed
  • 1¼ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup peppers, (red, green, or orange), finely chopped
  • ½ cup oats
  • ½ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 flax egg*


In a large mixing bowl, mash 1½ cups of the black beans. Add remaining ½ cup of beans. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and salt. Pour the spices over the bean mixture. Add all of the remaining ingredients, and mix well with your hands.

Form into four or five large patties or eight smaller patties for the kids.

Grill on a greased sheet of aluminum foil on the grill just as you would a traditional burger. (Use the foil to prevent pieces from falling down between the grates until it cooks thoroughly.) Or you can cook these burgers in a pan. Once browned and starting to crisp on the bottom side, flip and do the same on the other. Serve on a gluten free bun or in a lettuce wrap topped with your favorite toppings like vegan cheese and yummy tomatoes!

*Flax egg: 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons warm water. Mix and set aside for at least 5 minutes.
