  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray
  2. Mash black beans in a bowl with a potato masher. Add onion, garlic and celery
  3. Whisk 1 tablespoon flour, water, Sriracha, and spices together in a separate small bowl. Stir this mixture into black bean mixture.
  4. Mix whole-wheat bread into bean mixture. Stir 3 tablespoons flour and flax egg into bean mixture until a sticky batter forms.
  5. Place mixture in refrigerator for 30 minutes (or freezer for 15 minutes) to harden
  6. Spoon 4 equal servings of mixture onto baking sheet, shape into burgers
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven, 10 minutes on each side (this will cook them all the way through)
  8. Turn oven up to 450 degrees, cook for an additional 5-8 minutes on each side (this will crisp up the outside of burger)

*NOTE – Oven cooking time will vary depending on how thick you shape your burgers.  Keep an eye on them!
