    These are very tasty and I like the crunch of the almond! I only made the burgers, not the sauce. Initially I substituted the flour for quick oats, but it was such a wet mixture that it was hard to form patties, so I added in flour anyway. However, once everything was cooked and cooled, the patty made of oats without flour held together as well as the rest of them! I'd say it is a pretty forgiving recipe. I will make this again.
