Three Ingredient Bean Burgers
Recipe type: Entree
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 burgers
A fork, a bowl, and 3 ingredients- the easiest bean burgers you'll ever make!
  • 3 cups cooked black beans (or two cans, drained and rinsed)
  • ¾ cup quick oats
  • ½ cup sauce (I used leftover Creamy Buffalo Sauce. See notes for recipe link and alternatives)
  • Salt, pepper, and other spices (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and mash with a fork until a chunky dough forms. You want to leave some whole beans, but you want the dough to be mashed enough that it sticks together well. Taste and add salt/pepper/seasonings to your liking.
  2. If you have time, refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400F. Divide and shape dough into 8 patties. Arrange on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes, flip, and bake for another 5-6 minutes until a golden brown crust forms.
  5. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers for up to one week or freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
Creamy Buffalo Sauce:

More sauce options: BBQ sauce, ketchup, mustard, salad dressing, pasta sauce, thai peanut sauce, or any of our aioli sauces. Use any combination of these to compose a ½ cup of sauce.
