  • 3 TBSP lime juice from about 1-2 limes
  • 1 15 ounce can no salt added black beans rinsed & drained
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup minced jalapeño from 1 jalapeño

Instructions

  • In a medium glass or ceramic bowl, mash the avocado and lime juice. Add half of the beans, garlic powder, and salt. Mash together.
  • Add the chia seeds, jalapeño, green onions, oats, and remaining beans. Stir well to combine completely.
  • Shape into 4 patties, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to overnight (but make sure to cover them).
  • When ready to cook, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in patties, making sure they don't touch. Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side, until crispy on the outside.
