These Green Apple & Thyme Burgers are made with ground beef and seasoned with green apple, thyme and onion powder.  They are a great family friendly, Paleo meal option.


  • 1 lb organic, grass fed ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 green apple, finely chopped (65 g)
  • 1/4 cup ground flax (or almond flour)
  • 1 Tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl.  Mix first with a fork, then use your hands.
  2. Separate the beef mixture into 4-6 pieces* and roll into balls.  Using your hands, flatten the patties and place them on a large skillet.
  3. Place the skillet on your stove top and turn the heat to medium.  Cover the burgers and cook for 10 minutes.  Then, flip the burgers and cook an additional 8-10 minutes uncovered**
  4. Remove burgers from skillet and serve with your favorite toppings and condiments.


*I made 6 burgers, but this recipe will serve anywhere from 4-6 people.  If using sweet potato buns like I did, then I recommend making the burgers smaller.

**Cooking time will vary slightly depending on how thick your burgers are and how well done you like them.  This cooking time was specifically for 6 burgers cooked well done.  They were still moist, but perfectly cooked through (no pink on the inside).
