Sweet Potato & Zucchini Chickpeas Burgers

Burgers are one of my favourite thing to make when I have no idea what to eat for supper. If you have a type of bean, oats or flour and veggies, you are basically ready to make your own burger from scratch! So simple and easy.

This burger recipe is delicious, gluten free, filling and you can make it without using any oil. Actually, baking these burgers taste better than pan-frying them!
