Clean Eating Falafel


  • 1 can of chick peas
  • 1 onion spring roughly chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic minced - be careful with the garlic if you have to meet people the next day ;-)
  • 1/2 lemon peeled
  • 2 ts cumin
  • 1 tbs bell pepper powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 75 g chick pea flour or every other flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat the oven to 220°C
  • Mince the garlic, chop the spring onion and peel the lemon
  • Give all the ingredients besides the olive oil and the flour into a food processor and blend until roughly chopped but well combined
  • Add the flour and knead until smooth
  • Form the mixture into 16 to 18 little balls and place them on a baking sheet
  • Coat lightly with the olive oil and let bake about 15-20 min from each side
  • A perfect Falafel is crisp and brown from the outside yet smooth and a little moist from the inside.
  • Enjoy hot!
