  • Food Processor
  • Large Skillet
  • Mixing Bowl


  • 1 15 ounce can/carton Chickpeas no salt added, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Carrot
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 cup Fresh Parsley
  • 1/2 cup Oats instant, quick, or old-fashioned
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Avocado Oil for frying


  • Grate the bell pepper, onion, and carrot in a food processor
  • Squeeze the vegetables with a paper towel in a colander to remove excess moisture.
  • Chop the parsley, and mince the garlic.
  • Add the chickpeas and oats to the food processor and blend for 1 minute or until a dough forms.
  • Combine the chickpea mixture, vegetables, parsley, and spices together in a mixing bowl, and then form into four patties.
  • Heat the oil in large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the chickpea patties and cook for three minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Set the patties on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  • Serve, and enjoy!


  • If you don't have a food processor, you can mash the chickpeas with a potato masher or fork, and the vegetables can be diced small with a knife. The oats can be processed in a coffee grinder or oat flour may be substituted.
  • Serve as chickpea burgers, in a wrap, or alongside a tossed salad or cooked veggies.
  • Garnish with your traditional condiments, tzatziki or avocado sauce.
  • Chickpea patties can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. They are great for meal prepping lunches for the week!
