Lunch on-the-go: 3-Step Chickpea Burgers

Preparing your lunch in advance is an easy way to stay on track with your healthy diet whilst saving a huge amount of money over time that would be spent on shop-bought sandwiches and chemical-filled takeaways. I love filling my lunchbox with some sort of burger, whether it’s my Edamame Mushroom Burgers or these chickpea burgers, which are packed full of protein, high in fibre and most importantly, absolutely delicious! This recipe makes 4 burgers and you can freeze any leftovers to eat at a later date. Pictured below with a generous dollop of my Homemade Hummus (I added turmeric to my standard hummus recipe to give it that golden colour!)















1 can of chickpeas
4 tbsp porridge oats
2 spring onions, chopped
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp thyme
Pinch of salt
1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until fully combined.
2. Roll into 4 patties.
3. Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a pan and fry on a low heat for 5 minutes on each side before serving or placing in tupperware in the fridge for tomorrow’s packed lunch!
I’d love to know what you guys think of this recipe – tag me on Instagram @cerealandpeanutbutter if you make them!
