Baked falafel that's void of oil, and baked in the oven. None of the mess to clean up, but full of the flavor!

Course: Appetizer, Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Servings: 6
Calories: 32 kcal
  • 3 15 oz cans garbanzo beans, drained
  • 1 small handfull fresh parsley
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 6 tbsp gluten free flour (sub whole wheat if gf isn't needed)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

  2. Add all ingredients aside from baking powder and flour to a food processor. Process for 30 seconds or until it begins to come together. 

  3. Scoop mixture into a bowl and add baking powder and flour; mixture should be a consistency that can be formed into patties. If not, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. 

  4. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, take golf ball-sized balls of falafel dough and flatten into patties; place onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time.

  5. Let cool and serve with hummus, tzatziki or (sometime for kids) ketchup.
