Mmm mmm mmm.

This month’s theme for Recipe Redux was keepin with St. Patty’s Day all month long and creating a new take on a patty! Typically, I am a carnivore and would make a patty with some sort of animal protein..But I decided to switch it up for all you vegetarian lovers out there.

And what better way to do so other than using my number one favorite flavor..Pumpkin!

Even no animal protein is present in these patties, they are surely packed with protein. I have been loving chick peas lately, and decided to go with them again, yet savory this time. (unlike my recent past and !).

It might sound like a weird combination, but  let me tell you, it is wonderful! How could it not with it using my favorite ingredient.

And these patties are filled with super foods! Pumpkin, flaxseed, chia seed..nom nom nom.

Eat them on a bun, as a protein snack, or alongside of other healthy sides for a whole meal!

What is your favorite kind of patty??

What is the next creation you would like to see here on Fresh Fit N Healthy?

Until next time,
