I live in Israel where falafel is wildly available and you can find options from gluten free to coated and spicy versions. Despite the variety I’m still looking for a all-good-for-you falafel and decided to take it as a mission at home.
These baked falafels are gluten free and you can make them vegan by replacing the egg with vegan substitute such as soaked flax seeds. The round shape is easily achieved by baking them in a cake pop mold ( I tend to use that mold to all but cake pop baking so it’s a pretty useful tool). The mixture is a bit too runny for shaping them by hand, I’d try using spoons instead. If you bake them on a flat baking sheet, you should leave some space in between in case they won’t keep the shape and becomes patties instead of balls.
If you do try them, please let us know how you like them and we’d love to see pictures too!
