These baked garlic chili chickpea patties are all flavor and easy to make. Healthy, satisfying and loaded with plant based protein. Perfect for meal prep too!


  • 1 small sweet potato (about the size of your fist)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 medium red onion, minced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Take sweet potato and poke holes into the skin and place in the microwave for 3-4 minutes or hit potato button and cook until soft. Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Mix water and flax seed in a small bowl and allow to gel up, about 5 minutes.
  3. Once sweet potato is cooled, cube it. Optional, but if you don't want the skin on, feel free to cut sweet potato in half and just scrap out the insides with a spoon into a food processor.
  4. Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas. Allow chickpeas to sit on a few paper towels or clean kitchen towel to remove excess moisture.
  5. Add ALL ingredients to a food processor and pulse until well mixed and easy to mold into patties.
  6. Take 1/4 cup mixture and with slightly wet hands, mold mixture into a patty shape.
  7. Place patty on a lined baking sheet and repeat patty formation with remaining mixture (should form 6 patties).
  8. Bake 25 minutes, carefully flip and bake another 10-15 minutes or until burger is firm, then remove from oven. Allow to sit for at least 5-10 minutes to cool before serving.


  • You can easily double this recipe to make a larger batch. 
  • These burgers are easy to freeze for later use. Make sure to allow to fully cool and then store in a container. Use a piece of parchment paper to separate burgers and prevent them from sticking together.
  • If you don’t have a microwave, you can either roast your potato in the oven ahead of time or peel, cube and steam your sweet potato until it’s soft. If opting for steaming, please note that you want to allow potato to completely cool and let some of the moisture dry off before adding to food processor.
