Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 1 hr 5 mins
Servings 6 burgers


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups black beans, cooked
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/4 cup buffalo sauce
  • 3 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Mix 3 tbsp chickpea flour with 3 tbsp water. Set aside.
  • Peel and chop the sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Then boil the sweet potatoes for about 20 minutes or until they are just soft enough to stab with a fork. Avoid over cooking, as you don't want the sweet potatoes to be too soft or else the burgers won't hold together.
  • Once sweet potatoes are done cooking, boil the canned black beans for about 5 minutes to soften.
  • Then in a medium bowl, mash the sweet potatoes and black beans together.
  • Chop up the onion into small dices, and add that into the bowl. Mix well.
  • Add in the chickpea flour mixture, buffalo sauce, olive oil, salt, paprika, garlic, and onion powder.
  • Spray a baking sheet with olive oil. Then form the sweet potato mixture into 6 1-inch thick patties. Place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, flip, then bake for another 25 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
