How to make oat flour
Oat flour is simply ground up oats. It’s a great GF filler in veggie burgers and a healthy alternative to flour.
How to make black bean and corn burgers
- Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl
- Use a potato masher to mash and blend all the ingredients together
Once all the ingredients are incorporated, use a 1/3 scoop to form patties. Transfer to a baking sheet and get ready to bake.
Tip: You can add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until smooth instead of following the potato masher method.
This recipe yields 6 patties using the 1/3 scoop. Bake for 30 minutes; 20 on one side and 10 on another until light golden brown.
Note: The veggie burger mixture should be sticky but stay together. If the mixture is too liquidy, add some more oat flour or flax meal. If it’s too firm, add a small amount of water until desired consistency is reached.
What to eat with veggie burgers:
- Sweet potato fries
- Pasta salad
- Green salad
- Omit the bun for a low-carb option and eat on top of a large salad or grain bowl
Can you freeze cooked veggie burgers?
Yes! Veggie burgers are an awesome freezer-friendly food. Store in the freezer and heat up in the microwave or oven when ready to eat.
This recipe is perfect for meal prepping. You can make a big batch and store any leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
There are tons of veggie burgers out there in the freezer section, but making veggie burgers from scratch is so easy to do! Store them in the freezer like you would with a store-bought variety for a healthy vegan meal always on hand.
