  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) then line a baking tray with foil and spray lightly with olive oil or, what I recommend, line with a silicone baking pads.. Combine sweet potato, beans, and garlic in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add seasoning then pulse until nearly smooth. Scrape into a large bowl and add the oat flour and flax then mix well. Use a runner spatula to form mixture into 6 patties and place on prepared tray.
  2. Bake in oven for about 18 - 20 minutes on each side (flip after first 20 minutes) then remove from oven and allow them to cool for about 10 minutes to set up or they will fall apart.
  3. Toast buns if desired and assemble burgers by placing patties on buns and topping with any other toppings you like.
