Whether you’re someone who constantly finds themselves craving huge dinners, or prefer something light and veggie-centric, with the amount of different plant-based burger varieties out there, chances are you’ll be able to find a recipe you like.

Of course, there are also some popular options out there if you’re looking: most everyone has tried a black bean-based patty, for example. However, there are quite a few binders people are using these days to construct veggie burgers that won’t fall apart, and today we’re focusing on one of our favorites: oats!


Once oats get wet, they can make a great binder and aid you in your quest to make the perfect veggie burgers every time. If you’re interested in trying oats out as a binder for yourself, then check out some of the recipes we’ve pulled from our Food Monster App below, and let us know which recipe was your favorite!
