Mushroom, Pumpkin & Rosemary Mini-Burgers {vegan, grainfree}

Healthy, baked mini burgers made from pumpkin, mushrooms and almond flour! They are vegan, grain-free and have only 75 calories apiece

These mini-burgers may not be energy bars, per se, but who said that power bars have to follow any particular rules, anyway? Packed with seasonal white beans, mushrooms, and pumpkin, these mini burgers have everything you want and need in an energy bar, and more:

*Portability

*Nutrient-density

*Affordability

*Deliciousness

*Protein

*Fiber

*Low-sugar

*and much more…

They also happen to be gluten-free, grain-free and vegan. If that were not enough, cooking these is completed, with ease, with an oven and a muffin tin.

Feel free to stuff these inside slider buns, pitas, or wraps, as you would falafel or burgers. I am choosing to savor them in their uncluttered simplicity, and relishing every power-packed bite. Cheers, everyone!

Yield: 12 mini burgers

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease or spray all 12 cups of a standard muffin tin.

Notes

Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months. These will keep well at room temperature for several hours (e.g., packed in a lunch bag).

Rosemary Options: You can use 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or rubbed sage or 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves in place of the fresh rosemary.

Almond Flour Options: You can grind 1/2 cup of your favorite nuts or seeds, ground in a food processor or coffee grinder, in place of the almond flour.
