Lentil Carrot Veggie Burgers

I just love homemade veggie burgers.   These lentil carrot veggie burgers are my latest creation.  Actually, my husband came up with these lentil carrot veggie burgers.  It’s quite easy with simple ingredients.  Homemade veggie burgers are super easy and always taste better than the rubbery veggie burgers you can buy at the store.  I always make sure to top my veggie burgers with avocado.  It always makes them that much better.  Then again, avocados make everything better, don’t they?  You could eat these burgers by them themselves, on a bun, or even top a salad with one.  Personally, I like mine without the bun and with a side of veggies like my simple roasted broccoli or my maple glazed Brussel sprouts.  Yum!

These truffles are super easy to make.  They are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  If you don’t want to make your own cake batter coconut butter, you can get a store bought version as well.  The store bought version is double the price of my homemade cake batter coconut butter.  If you like flavored coconut butter, you may also like this recipe.  I used chocolate chips to make the chocolate coating, but you can also use my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe.  If you choose to use the 3 ingredient chocolate, then you can omit the almond milk.
