Black Bean Burgers from AmyBites

Better Than Ever Black Bean Burgers - slightly adapted from "Peas and Thank You" - as found on AmyBites blog years ago. The original recipe does call for 1 Tbsp tahini which I do not include. I also use coconut aminos in place of reduced-sodium soy sauce due to lower sodium, which makes these a bit sweeter but not off-putting.
