CLEAN PALEO BURGERS




Makes: 6 medium burger Pattys


Ok where to start…. To begin with, I see many paleo recipes that contain eggs, and I come across loads of vegan burger pattys that use flour or stacks of beans/legumes. I was inspired to create the ultimate healthy burger Pattys.


Im talking, VEGAN, PALEO, GLUTEN FREE, NUT FREE and all the rest.



These burger patties use clean and damn delicious ingredients.

They are moist and make you feel nourished and vibrant. I always choose to eat food that contain ingredients to keep my skin beautiful, energy up and tummy happy.


I opted to use homemade sunflower seed meal for this recipe because of a few reasons.


  1. Its SOOO much cheaper than almond meal and my priority is always sourcing the most affordable ingredients I can. You can buy a bulk bag of sunflower seeds for around $3 in contrast to 500g of almond meal costing you over $15 !

  2. Some of you have nut allergies, so this recipe is like a dream.

  3. Sunflower seed meal is darn delicious. Ive started using it in my baked goods as well, and it adds a different element.



Serve your burger Pattys how you like them. You can make a traditional burger using buns or opt for a lettuce wrap or burger salad bowl.
