Healthy Vegan Mexican spiced black bean burgers!

Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 40 Minutes


  • 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water (or an egg)
  • 1-15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2cup corn (I used thawed from frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Place flax and water in a small bowl, stirring to combine. Set aside to “gel.” You can also use a real egg in place of a flax egg.
  3. Place drained and rinsed beans and avocado in a large bowl. Use a fork to mash mixture together, leaving some beans whole.
  4. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or a silipat. Spray with cooking spray. Form mixture into four tightly-packed patties.
  6. Bake for 40 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through.
