• 1-19oz. Canned chick peas, drained
  • ¾ cup Chopped onion
  • ¾ tsp. Ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. Parsley flakes
  • ½ tsp. Baking powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • ½ tsp. Ground coriander
  • ½ tsp. Turmeric
  • 1 cup oat flour or flour of choice
  • 2 Large eggs
  • Cooking oil, for deep frying
  1. Run chick peas and onion through food processor.
  2. Add next 10 ingredients.
  3. Mix well. Shape into 2.5cm balls.
  4. Leave balls round or flatten them into patties.
  5. Lower balls or patties on slotted spoon into hot 375F cooking oil.
  6. Cook about 45 seconds or until the desired shade of brown.
  7. Remove with slotted spoon to dish lined with paper towel.

Stuff pitas using 4 balls or flattened patties in each. Spoon tahini sauce over falafels. Makes 44 falafels.

*Deep frying isn’t the healthiest way to cook but makes the most delicious falafels. Make sure to use new oil with a high smoke point (like avocado) or bake them if you are concerned.
