Vegan Oatmeal Black Bean Burgers

I have been making these burgers for many years, and they are my go-to burgers. These are the best Vegan Oatmeal Black Bean Burgers recipe I’ve had, and also are our readers’ favorite. 

I decided to update the photo since I made some just in time for the 4th of July. This recipe is no-fail, they don’t fall apart and can even be grilled.

Mind-blowing! An easy vegan burger recipe with simple ingredients that you more than likely already have in your pantry, and you can also easily substitute with ingredients you have available. See my tips below!

This vegan burger recipe is also gluten-free. I used Little Northern Bakehouse Millet And Chia Seeds Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns to eat with my burgers.

  The burgers can be made in larger quantities and they freeze well. Also try my homemade Vegan Mayo Recipe as a topping. 

These burgers are delicious served with my flavorful Baked Jicama Fries or Oven Baked Potato Wedges.

Tips For Making Vegan Black Bean Burgers

  1. Black beans may be substituted with cooked kidney beans, white beans, chickpeas.
  2. Pecans, almonds, and cashews may be used instead of walnuts.
  3. This oatmeal burger recipe can be modified to use the herbs that you like. It is such a versatile recipe, that it is difficult to mess it up.
  4. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos is a soy sauce alternative that is gluten-free. You can substitute it with tamari sauce, coconut aminos, or wheat free soy sauce.
  5. If you are allergic to oatmeal, then substitute with quinoa flakes.
  6. You can also substitute the ground flaxseeds with chia seeds.

*I decided to redo the recipe to make it gluten-free as well. My readers kept asking me about substitutions and because it’s such a popular recipe I decided to go ahead and do a makeover.

This version is very delicious. My eight-year-old Daevyd, helped me to make these burgers and he enjoyed eating his burger so much. He kept telling me how good it tasted! He is very picky and he actually wanted another burger!
