These crispy, mildly sweet patties are delicious with lightly dressed arugula.

High hopes based on the ingredient were met by disappointment with the final product. These weren’t as good as they sounded.
Agree with previous reviewers that a) they are bland and b) you cannot taste pine nuts at all. I would add that they are mushy/soft and don’t hold together well. Be sparing with oil... too much oil and they fall apart. Use very little to brown them.
I will not make again... but if I were to I would a) try adding some binder such as egg and maybe more oatmeal to firm up when cooked, b) ditch the pine nuts, and c) add more flavoring.
Note... I let mixture sit in fridge for an hour before shaping and I had no issues.
I found them very bland. But they have potential. Next time I will do spices x 4! One does not taste the pine nuts (expensive as they are!!!). Better use cashew or walnuts, coarsely chopped and added at the end by hand to give a crunch. And definitely onions. In order to keep them together, cook them in the oven on a silpad: they will dry out a bit on the outside and won't stick.
Very easy to do, and makes a great light meal. They must be pressed together well in order to get them to retain the shape while cooking. Wetting your hands after each one seems to help.
