Almond Flaxseed Burger

Here's a healthy veg burger idea from Brendan Brazier. Brendan designs every recipe to help you "Thrive" in your fitness goals. Throw one of these tasty burgers on a sprouted Ezekiel bun with lettuce, tomato, sprouts, avocado, and eggless mayo for an easy dinner after you get home from the gym.

  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, hemp oil, or EFA Oil Blend
  • sea salt to taste

Put all ingredients into a food processor. Process until well blended.

Process less if you prefer a coarser texture. Form into 2 patties.

Serve raw or, if you prefer to cook them, lightly cover with coconut oil and bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes. Alternatively, lightly fry over medium until golden brown, flipping once.
