PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 25 mins TOTAL TIME: 35 mins SERVINGS: 12 falafels
● 1 15 oz can chickpeas (drained, rinsed and drained) ● 1/4 cup packed fresh parsley ● 1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro ● 1/3 cup chopped red onion ● 1 Tbsp lemon juice ● 4 garlic cloves
● 1 tsp cumin
● 1 tsp salt
● 1/2 tsp pepper
● 2 Tbsp oat flour (sub any flour)
Preheat oven to 400F and grease and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add all ingredients except flour to a food processor and pulse until evenly mixed and small chunks remain. You want the mixture to stick together when pressed between fingers, but not be pureed otherwise will turn to hummus. Scrape down sides as needed.
Stir in oat flour by hand.
Scoop out 12 balls of dough with hands and place each on baking sheet. Lightly
Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown on both sides, flipping falafels once halfway.
