The Easiest Burger you’ll Ever Make- Seriously.

  • Yield : 6
  • Servings : 6
  • Prep Time : 10m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 15m

At a minimum, this recipe has 3 ingredients. Oat flour, beans, and tomato sauce. Now, I like my burgers spicy so I threw some sriracha sauce in to amp up the heat, but this can easily be omitted. The coolest part about this recipe is that you can use whatever kind of beans you have – I just happened to have a neglected can of kidney beans in the back of my cabinet that needed to be brought to life so thats what I used. This burger made an excellent addition to my zoodle salad this afternoon.

Hope you enjoy!! Leave a comment with feedback especially if you tried a different kind of bean!




  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 2-3T sriracha or hot sauce
  • 1/3-1/2 cup pasta sauce (depending on how much sriracha you use)
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • Garlic, salt and pepper to taste (optional)


Step 1

1. Process beans in a food processor until smooth(ish) *Its ok if there are some chunks

Step 2

2. Combine oat flour, beans, hot sauce, and pasta sauce in a bowl. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder if you choose.

Step 3

3. Form into 1/2 inch thick patties and in a greased skillet over medium heat cook on each side for 3-4 minutes until crispy.

Step 4

4. Enjoy on a burger, over a salad or on its own!

    Easy and it turned out great. It held together well when cooking. I might try leaving some beans whole next time for texture.

    I do not like spicy food; can I substitute sriracha/hot sauce with something else or leave out?

      Hi Lisa, I haven’t tried any subs – but I’m sure ketchup could work as a non- spicy alternative!

    This may seem like a stupid question – but what is pasta sauce? Is it spaghetti sauce? New to cooking here!

    • posted by Lauren Bossi on July 19, 2017

      Yes it is, in fact, any jarred sauce will work!

    Do you know if these freeze well?

    • posted by Lauren Bossi on July 24, 2017

      Yes, they do! I froze a few and reheated in a pan on the stove.

    I can’t eat oats, what other types of flour could I use?

    • posted by Lauren Bossi on August 2, 2017

      Chickpea flour will work well, or wheat perhaps!

    Do I drain the beans?
