Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

I have been looking for homemade veggie burgers recipes.  These sweet potato veggie burgers are not my own recipe. However,  I make it a lot so I wanted to share it with you.  I found it on vegweb.  I made a few changes to the original recipe.


These sweet potato veggie burgers are easy to make, freeze well and a much better alternative to store bought versions.  I will typically make a double batch so I can freeze a bunch.  Then when you have a busy night with no time to cook dinner, you can whip these out, reheat and serve. Super easy.

They are sweet so kids will like them too.  I add avocado to the top of mine because avocados make everything better!  These would go great with my Healthy French Fries.

We filmed a little video for this recipe.  You can view below. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Prep Time 30 min Cook Time 30 min


  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1-1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats (depending on the size of your sweet potato)
  • 2 green onions chopped fine
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 T nutritional yeast optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil the sweet potato until tender.
  3. Mash the cooked sweet potato. 
  4. Add the oats and stir in the seasonings.  I used my kitchen aid mixer to stir it well. 
  5. Form the mixture into patties. 
  6. Line or grease a baking sheet with a bit of oil and put the patties on it.  I use a Mr Misto oil sprayer to grease the pan.  Works like PAM , but much healthier because you can fill it with whichever oil you choose.  No chemicals.
  7. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the burgers are a bit crispy on the outside.  Enjoy!

  1. Oohhh, I can't wait to try these! I have all the ingredients in my kitchen, too. And since I sell Wildtree organics, I am going to try with the different seasonings like Lemon Pepper, Absolutely Onion, and maybe Scampi blend. The french fries I tried with our Zesty Lemon Grapeseed Oil and the Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil and they were out of this world! Didn't even need to add salt! Thanks for sharing your awesome recipes!
  2. I am using old fashioned rolled oats which I don't have much experience with yet- do I need to boil those first before forming them into the patties with the cooked sweet potato or will baking the patties without them cooked be just fine??
    1. No boiling at all. Just add them to the cooked sweet potato and form them into patties. Then you can bake them in the oven.
  3. My meat loving husband made these for us tonite, and we absolutely loved them! we grilled pineapple rings and mushrooms to go along with them, they were delish! thank you! we will definately make these again! :)
  4. My mom used to make something really similar when I was a kid but with left-over mashed potatoes! Can't wait to try these. I hate processed veggie burgers.
  5. Think I will make these and surprise my daughter. We are always looking for yummy healthy recipes and these sound absolutely fabulous!!
  6. Have you ever made these grain-free? with something other than oats? I'm wondering if they would work with quinoa flakes or something else?
    1. I haven't, but I bet they would work with sunflower seeds or pepitas. Quinoa flakes may turn to mush because they are much thinner than oats.
  7. You can just chuck your whole unpeeled sweet potatoes in the oven for about 45 and they cook to perfection. I usually do a few at once and keep them in the fridge. To make my patties, I just blitz a couple of them in the food processor, skin and all along with a can of chickpeas or lentils. Fry some garlic, ginger and green onions in a tsp of curry paste and add to vege. Make them into little patties and cook in a little coconut oil. I'm a vego, but my meat eating family love them. Will now try with some oats too for a little variety :)
  8. Fantastic - thank you for this. Very simple and great tasting. I added fresh red chilies and a tsp of hot La Dalia smoked chilies. Served with sour cream and chicken https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2sc60tpatcfsog/sweetpotatoes1.jpg
    1. Do you use a microwave? If so, I would re-heat them on the defrost setting for a minute or two. If you don't have a microwave, or don't like to use one, you can just leave them out of the fridge/freezer and they should be fine to eat by lunchtime. My husband brings these to work often.
  9. These sound great! Wanted to ask if they come out crispy or if you think I can make them thinner to get them crispier. My toddler loves crunchy but not mushy things so am a bit worried about the texture inside. Thanks for the wonderful healthy ideas!
    1. I think if you used steel cut oats they would be crunchy. You can also add more oats and less sweet potatoes? I think that may work too.
  10. Sounds great! Planning to try it. Can you cook the sweet potato in the microwave and then just scoop out the soft potato? Would you need to put it in a food processor too?
    1. Thanks! I have never tried it that way, but it could work? You may not need the food processor depending on how soft the potato was.
  11. Made these tonight - amazing! We didn't have fresh parsley, so I added ground cumin instead. Worked very nicely. Love your blog so much - thanks for sharing!
    1. Glad you liked them! We made a new variation of these today that was awesome. I will be posting them in the near future. :)
