These Mexican-spiced Avocado Bean Burgers make the perfect quick lunch or dinner! They're packed with plant-based protein and fiber for a tasty and simple meatless meal. Vegan and gluten-free!


Units Scale
  • 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water (or 1 large egg)
  • 1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup corn (I used thawed from frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup oat flour (certified GF if necessary)
  • 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." 
  3. Place drained and rinsed beans and avocado in a large bowl. Use a fork to mash mixture together, leaving some beans whole. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, foil, or a silipat. Spray with cooking spray. Form mixture into four tightly-packed patties.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through. Serve with your favorite burger toppings!
