  • 15 ounces black beans 1 can, drained, organic
  • 15 ounces kidney beans 1 can, drained, organic
  • 2 ½ cups breadcrumbs - - I used 2 whole wheat hamburger buns, make sure this is not wheat and marked gluten free in you are on a gluten free diet
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup red onion - finely chopped
  • 1 ½ cup sunflower kernels
  • ½ cup carrot - finely pulsed
  • 2 egg substitutes
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • oil for frying burger patties


  • Process the beans quickly (pulse) in a food processor so that they are still a bit chunky or mash with a potato masher..
  • Process your bread for the breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet.
  • Add the onion and carrot and saute for about 10 minutes.
  • Mix the egg replacer and water and set aside.
  • Put all of the ingredients in a large bowl.[
  • Make into balls and place on a cookie sheet. I used an ice cream scoop to get them even in size.
  • Put 6 on each cookie sheet.
  • Space out the balls evenly and flatten each ball with the palm of your hand to make a patty.
  • Freeze at this point or fry the amount of patties that you want.
  • Fry the patties in a little bit of hot oil for 5 minutes on each side.
  • Set aside for hamburger assembly and/or freezing.
