Combine 3 Tablespoons of Raw Chia Seeds in a bowl with room temperature water. Use a 9:1 ratio of water to whole chia seeds. Stir occasionally, gel is done in usually 10-15 minutes.


Mixing Instructions

In a very large mixing bowl, add oats, quinoa and kaniwa (once cool), drained black beans, sliced olives, chia gel and salsa.  Mix extremely well with your hands until completely mixed


Forming the Burgers

Take a cookie sheet and spray with the spray EVOO, also spray your hands so the material does not stick.  Roll into a tight ball and press on the cookie sheet in the form of a burger patty. Lightly spray the top of the burgers with the oil once they are on the baking sheet. Place in the oven.  You can cook up to 2 full sheets at a time.  Cook for 8 minutes then flip and cook for another 5 until golden brown.


Let Cool and enjoy!
