Directions

  1. Place the oats and sunflower seeds in a food processor and pulse until broken down into a coarse flour.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until well combined. Refrigerate for about an hour until chilled, this will make the mixture easier to handle.
  3. Once chilled, form the mixture into 6 burger patties, or 12 sliders. (rub your hands with a little oil first helps keep the mixture from sticking).
  4. These patties can be frozen for use later, or place on a baking sheet lined with parchment and place into an oven preheated to 400 degrees F and cook for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. These can also be made in a non-stick pan. Cooke about 3 minutes per side on medium high heat, use a little oil to prevent sticking.
  6. Serve on its own or with a whole grain bun.
