  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Poke a few holes into sweet potato with a fork; place on a greased baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until sweet potato can be easily pierced with a fork, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Peel sweet potato and place into a large bowl. Add black beans and mash with a whisk or fork. Add oats, onions, Dijon mustard, cumin, ginger, salt, and cinnamon and mix until well combined. Shape mixture into 6 patties with wet hands and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp on the outside, about 8 minutes on each side.

These really have a great flavor. I cooked them a little longer and a bit higher temp at the end so they would be nice and crispy on the outside.

I would make it again only using 1 can of beans. I think the burger would not be as dry

Quick, easy, and delicious.

This was delicious! I made the black beans from scratch. I wanted to puree the beans so I had to add 1/2 cup of the bean water to the mixture to get my blender to blend. Then I added an addition...

I made it without adding salt, and it was pretty yummy. It didn't knock me out of the park with the flavor, personally-- but everyone who ate it enjoyed it, and I received several compliments!
