These sliders are SO simple and SO delicious! My husband isn’t the type of guy to EVER be interested in a plant based protein option but he TRULY likes the taste of these chipotle black bean sliders! I was shocked, I haven’t been very successful in persuading him to try more plant based proteins until now!
Packed with plant based protein, fiber and so much flavor these sliders are perfect for a quick meal at home or to take to a cookout!
Flaxseeds are one of the richest sources of ALA (alpha-Linolenic acid), the most common omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain function as well as heart and eye health.
Canned black beans and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are pantry essentials in our house. Fresh garlic and onions are also ingredients that we ALWAYS have on hand so these are easy and quick to throw together for us.
I cook these patties on the stove top but they are so good on the grill if you know your way around one! (My husband does all the grilling, and I'll be honest-I don't even think I know how start the grill! One day I'll learn...now it's a goal)
These are great for meal prep, you can form the patties during your weekend meal prep and store them in the fridge until you need them during the week. Just place parchment paper between the patties and seal tightly in a zip lock bag. Freeze them if you need some quick homemade emergency meals! Just double or triple the recipe!
This mixture is a little soft so be careful when forming them the patties. I use parchment paper to shape/pat them into perfect little sliders. I promise they are worth it, they really do taste great!

- If you're using flaxseeds:
Add flaxseeds to food processor and start. I set mine to puree mode and pulse it for 2 minutes. Remove ground flaxseeds from the food processor and place into a small bowl. Add 1 ½ tablespoon water give it a stir and set to the side.
- Cut some parchment paper into squares for the patties. The mixture for these sliders can be a little sticky so it will help to have these handy.
- In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat then add garlic, diced onion, bell pepper and chipotle peppers with adobo sauce. Saute while occasionally stirring for 3-5 minutes.
- Add black beans to the skillet and stir the mixture until it’s well combined. Turn off the heat, remove it from the stove and transfer the mixture to the food processor. Add the flaxseed mixture (or 1 egg) and oats to the food processor. Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste.
- Set the food processor to chop mode and pulse in short bursts until mixture is a crumbly texture.
- Form the mixture into 4 patties. The mixture can be sticky so use parchment paper.
Tip: Scoop mixture onto parchment paper and use a second piece of parchment paper to flatten/shape into a patty. Leave the patties on the individual parchment paper pieces.
- You can stack these with parchment paper in between the patties and store in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them or store them in the freezer if you’re prepping extra for future use!
- Heat your skillet over medium heat, spray it with cooking spray and flip the patty onto the skillet (parchment paper side up). Remove parchment paper from the top. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes. They are NOT as firm as regular meat patties so flip them carefully. The taste makes up for it, I promise! Remove from heat and they are ready to serve!
- Assemble sliders and enjoy!
