 1 tbsp sage, finely chopped
 15 oz can chickpeas, drained
 ½ cup pumpkin puree
 ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
 ¼ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper



Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.

In a small sauté pan, add olive oil and heat. Add onions and cinnamon and saute until translucent for about
3-5 minutes. Add sage and garlic and saute for 2 more minutes.

In a food processor, add chickpeas, pumpkin puree, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper. Pulse several times to break up ingredients, but don’t puree.

Transfer ingredients to a bowl and mix ingredients with a spatula. Form patties with your hands and place on a parchment paper covered baking sheet.

Bake in oven for approximately 30 minutes.
