I’m in love with this gluten-free baked falafel, it’s so delicious! I usually serve it with raw veggies and homemade vegan yogurt sauce.


  • 2/3 cup raw chickpeas, soaked overnight (120 g)
  • 1 handful of cilantro
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • Black pepper and salt to taste
  • 8 tbsp oat flour


  1. Soak the chickpeas in water overnight.
  2. Add chickpeas to a food processor or blender and blend for a few seconds.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the oat flour) and mix to combine. Don’t overblend, you want a chunky texture.
  4. Add the oat flour and blend just until it’s mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Place the mixture in a bowl, cover and let stand in the fridge for at least one hour.
  6. Preheat the oven 390ºF or 200ºC.
  7. Make about 20 small discs, place them onto a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake them for 30-40 minutes or until they’re golden brown, flipping once at the halfway point for even cooking (the time may vary depending of the oven you’re using).
  8. Serve with vegan yogurt sauce and your favorite raw veggies.
