  • 2 cups pre-cooked or canned chickpeas garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats gluten-free if necessary
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts

  • In a food processor or high speed blender combine all of the above ingredients
  • Blend until relatively smooth & evenly combined, but with some bits of coarse texture still showing through.
  • Cover and refrigerate your burger mixture for at least 1 hour.
  • Divide your burger mixture into about 1/4 cup dollops.
  • Shape into patties with your hands, wetting your fingers as needed if the mixture sticks at all.
  • Heat a lightly greased skillet on the stove over medium heat or alternatively heat a grill to medium heat and let pre-heat about ten minutes.
  • Grill each burger for about 4 minutes each side or until desired golden crispiness.
  • Garnish with more BBQ sauce before serving.
  • Enjoy!


I highly recommend using my Favorite BBQ Sauce!
