When you’re invited to a pool party in September, you make pumpkin black bean burgers! The calendar is says Autumn is here, but the sun is still shinning! I’ll take it.

We’ve been having an exceptionally hot summer here. That means more pool parties. I have no problem with that! Let the sun keep shinning.

These burgers are flavourful, offering a hearty bite from the black beans, combined with sweetness from the pumpkin! The combo is definitely a unique and delicious one!

Best part about these pumpkin black bean burgers?

This recipe is so easy to make! Just toss everything except the oats into a food processor until combined. Then mix in your oats, form your patties and bake. I absolutely love simple recipes that make minimal mess! This recipe is also super easy to double up. In fact, I did just that for this party, to ensure there were enough to go around. So if you’re serving a crowd, don’t hesitate to make a double batch.

While the burgers are baking, slice up some fresh tomato, pickles, red onion, or any of your favourite burger toppings. You can even make some easy 3 minute guac to top these bad boys.

By the way, if you’re watching your calorie intake, I’ve got great news! These patties have only 171 calories each!! So go ahead and have seconds. These low calorie burgers will not disappoint, and they’ll leave you feeling completely guilt free.

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Add everything except the oats to a food processor and pulse until combined, but do not over process to leave some of the beans a little chunky.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and add the oats and mix together.
  • Using wet hands, form your patties, place on your prepared baking tray and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool at room temperature for a few minutes before carefully transferring your patties to a plate or bun. Use a flat spatula to transfer them, as they will be a little delicate.
  • Enjoy these pumpkin black bean burgers with pickles, red onion and mustard. Or make some 3 Minute Guacamole to top yours!
