Ingredients List:

  • 30 ounces garbanzo beans or chick peas (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 1 cup fresh parsley (stems removed)
  • ⅛ cup fresh thyme & rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • juice from ½ a lemon
  • ⅛ cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
  • Baked Falafel Balls are delightful and filling, wholesome and full of great nutrition. Eaten in pita bread or as a salad, they go excellent with some chopped tomatoes and romaine lettuce. If you also use our Creamy Cashew Tahini Dressing, you are guaranteed a healthy falafel recipe.


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    2. Put all ingredients into a food processor except for the chickpea flour and baking powder.

    3. Coarsely chop ingredients but do not puree.

    4. Add baking powder and chickpea flour and continue to pulse into a dough.

    5. If the dough appears too wet add more chickpea flour until it thickens up.

    6. Form dough into large 1-2" balls, cover and place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

    7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place dough balls on baking sheet. Do not worry about placing them too close together, as they will not expand much.

    8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until nicely browned, flipping them over halfway through.

    9. Let baked falafel balls cool on the tray before transferring them to plates. Can be stored in refrigerator in an air tight container for 3-5 days.

    10. Serve with Tahini Cashew Cream Dressing, either on a salad or in pita bread.

    These baked falafel balls are delightful and filling. The different fresh spices add an amazing array of flavors, and when served with the Tahini Cashew Cream Dressing, there is a slight garlic pop to each bite. Whether you eat them in pita bread or as a salad, they go excellent with some chopped tomatoes and romaine lettuce.
