These flavourful burgers are jam-packed with nutritious goodies like flax and oats. They’re a delicious addition to your next barbeque.


1 lb (0.5 kg) ground chicken
2 tbsp (30 mL) flax, ground
1/2 cup (125 mL) oat bran
1 egg(s), beaten
2 tbsp (30 mL) ketchup
1/3 cup (75 mL) parsley, fresh, chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) garlic powder
1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) cayenne pepper
4 whole wheat hamburger buns


1 Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Shape into 4 patties. With the back of a teaspoon, make a depression in the center of each burger. This helps cook the center of the burger more quickly.
2 Preheat barbecue on medium heat. Grill burgers with the barbecue lid closed until a thermometer inserted into a burger reads 165°F (74°C) – about 9 minutes per side.
3 Serve on whole wheat buns topped with your favourite burger toppings.
