What You'll Need


  • 2 cans black beans, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup Culcherd Sharp & Smoky Cheese
  • 2 large eggs/flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax, 3 tbsp water)
  • 2 tbsp BBQ sauce (we love Good Food For Good)

  • 1 ½ tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

How To


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spread beans onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until slightly dried out. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, sauté chopped onions and garlic in a splash of avocado oil (or EVOO) over medium heat until onions are soft, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Place in a food processor or large bowl and add in all remaining ingredients. Stir or pulse everything together and then add in the black beans. Mash with a fork or pulse the mixture, making sure to leave larger chunks of beans.
  5. Using ⅓ of a cup, form into patties.
  6. In a cast iron skillet, heat avocado oil.
  7. Cook burgers for 3-5 minutes on each side, and then transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Patties can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week.
