  • 2 cups roasted sweet potato mashed (3-4 medium sweet potatoes)
  • 15 oz. canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup minced purple onion
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa ~1 cup uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced jalapeño
  • 1/3 cup roasted/unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons oat flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • First, preheat oven to 375ºF and spray a baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray. Then, cut sweet potatoes in half, drizzle with olive oil, poke them with a fork, and stick them in the oven skin-side down for 50-60 minutes.
  • While your sweet potatoes are roasting, mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are done, let them cool for about 10 minutes. Then use a spoon to spoon out the flesh. Mash in a bowl. Add 2 cups of mashed sweet potato to your mixture and thoroughly combine.
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF and spray a baking sheet with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • To create burger patties, use a 1/2 cup scoop. Wet your hands to form 1-inch burger patties and place on the pan. Bake at 375ºF for 15 minutes on each side (30 minutes total).
  • When burgers are done baking, heat about a teaspoon of olive oil on a nonstick skillet over low/medium heat.
  • Place patties in the fry pan for 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • When burgers are done, add toppings and enjoy!
