    It’s really easy to make your own chickpea flour. Put 1 cup of dried chickpeas into a blender and let it go for a minute on high. Dump it into a fine mesh strainer and regrind any bits left over. High protein and delicious- look up panelles- it’s like a chickpea polenta that sets up and then is sliced and fried.

    This turned out delicious! I followed the exact recipe except that i used almond butter instead of peanut butter. We will do this again for sure.

    Absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. It’s as versatile as you can imagine: perfect as a snack or a full meal. I only added cumin, since kids don't tolerate spicy food and it turned out delicious anyway.

    Really good. I’ll use almond butter next time for less peanut flavour. These freeze well and are just so convenient.

    Really good! Will let chill for 30+ minutes next time to decrease chances of them falling apart but will definitely be something I continue to make!

    Second time making these burgers, I read all the reviews and took some suggestions on board. Again, burgers turned out great. These are my variations: Almond butter to replace peanut butter Miso paste to replace yeast extract Oates to replace the chickpea flower As additional items I used cayenne pepper, coriander and lime juice. I didn’t have the hot sauce and I forgot to add the cumin. I used a food processor for 3/4 of the mixture, for 1/4 I left whole chickpeas for texture. Even my meat loving teenagers agree that the burgers are delicious.

    Love them! Just enough heat. I did not use the peanut butter or Cumin. One of my favorites!

    perfect. I have made them with beason flour and coconut flour. Both just as good and stick together really well.
    Tasty!!! accidentally doubled the chickpeas but I was still really happy with the result. good texture and easy to bake

    Super good! I used all purpose flour and 1/4 cup corn meal too. Put it on a bun with lettuce, red onion and mayo. Will definitely make again!

    It was alright, for me it didn’t hold well. But It wasn’t bad.

    I added mine into the over just to make sure the center was cooked. I also used more soy sauce than required.

    turned out really well but i would add a bit more salt and pepper next time to give it a bit more of a kick. there's potential to make more of the burgers, add mushrooms, potatoes, would taste better.

    I liked the peanut butter taste to it. Surprised it held together so well. I mashed up very little, leaving most of the chickpeas whole. Definitely does need more flavoring though to make more savory. I used 1/2 spelt and 1/2 tapioca flour. I baked it at 400 deg F for 25 minutes, flipping it once at 20 mins.

    These veggie burgers held together better than any I’ve tried making with no refrigeration/freezer time required or eggs. They do need a little more flavoring though so next time I’ll add some salt, pepper, and spices when I’m sautéing the veggie mixture before adding in the chickpea flour and other ingredients. I doubled the recipe (I used 1 can of chickpeas which is 1-3/4 cups) and it made 9 patties for me. I mashed the chickpea mixture and then baked on a parchment-lined sheet for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

    I did smoosh up the chickpeas, and all three kids really enjoyed the burgers.
