Default bean burgers without grain?

I'm going to experiment with bean burgers with either flax or chia meal, and maybe a little chickpea flour instead of bread crumbs or grains. Anyone tried it and have tips to hazards to share?

It would help to know why you want to do this. Are you on a gluten-free diet, for instance?

Cyndi - I actually did this on accident recently and it worked out well. You do need something to hold a burger together and chickpea flour is a good option. Almond flour and coconut flour might work as well.

I've made them with ground oatmeal (in like a food processor or coffee grinder, you can get a flour texture).

I did try the ground chia/garbanzo flour combo. It was pretty good but needs a little fine tuning. We are very careful about grains around here and I'd rather not mix them with beans just because the carb count is higher than we want. I served the burgers on flax muffins with chilis mixed in. Those were great.

I have a sunflower seed burger recipe that is completely grain free. Would you be interested in that, or only bean based?

I find that chickpea flour can be a little difficult to work with, and has it's own unique flavor, so it's important that you experiment a bit with it to make sure the flavors work. Why not just try out a few things? It should be fun.

Also, where are you finding your chickpea flour? I can only find it at Indian groceries.

I would love the sunflower recipe. thanks!

I am lucky enough to find chickpea flour at the discount store on a regular basis (it's Bob's Red Mill). Ocean State also carries it here.

I will be experimenting more with this idea soon.

This is the recipe I use. I don't eat them raw though, I usually cook @350 or so until the patties feel like burgers, maybe 10-20 minutes ymmv.

eta oh no I can't post links yet, its a site called raw food diet inspiration and the page is /rawfoodburger.html
