1-2 tsp olive oil
1 small-medium yellow onion, diced
2 cups oats (not instant)
1/2 cup ground Snack Primal walnuts
1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oil in a large skillet. Once hot, add the onions and cook (and stir) for about 10 minutes until very tender and golden brown.
Combine the oats and ground walnuts in a large bowl.
Place the chickpeas, almond milk, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried sage in a blender and process until very smooth and creamy.
Once smooth, pour into oats and walnuts. Add the browned onions and mix well. Allow the mixture to rest for 5-10 minutes so the oats can absorb the liquid.
Form into 6-8 thin, flat patties. Using the same skillet, add the burgers, lower heat to medium-low, and brown them for 5-7 minutes on each side, flipping them over once.
Top with Dijon mustard, lettuce, tomato, and avocado.
