Add 1/2 of the black beans, 1/2 of the lentils to the food processor and pulse until the mixture is starting to form a chunky paste/puree (does not have to be smooth).
Move the black bean and lentil mixture in a large bowl from the food processor.
To the food processor add 1 roasted red pepper (no liquid) and the red onion. Turn on high until this becomes a puree (takes about 20 seconds, doesn't have to be super smooth).
Add the pepper and onion mixture to the bowl with the bean mixture. To that also add the ground flax, oat flour and all the spices and salt, stir well.
Add the rest of the black beans and lentils to the bowl with the rest of the ingredients and stir well to fully combine.
Place patties on a parchment paper that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil or avocado oil spray.
Use a 1/3 cup for easy measuring, scoop out 1/3 cup of the mixture to your hands. Form into patties and add to the baking sheet. Makes 8 patties.
Bake at 375F for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take out of oven and carefully flip burgers. Cook 10 more minutes.
To make your own oat flour: Simply grind rolled oats in a high speed blender or food processor until it resembles flour (takes about 30 seconds to 1 minute). Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze after cooking and allowing to fully cool in an airtight freezer safe bag/container for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight or cook from frozen in the airfryer or in the oven until cooked through. If you do not have a food processor, simply use a fork to smash the beans and lentils as best as you can. The red onion and red bell pepper can be finely chopped with a knife.
