Homemade Falafel – Oven Baked

Falafel Recipe: Oven-Baked and Healthy

Falafel is a delicious Middle Eastern dish traditionally made by frying chickpeas or fava beans. However, in my version, you can even bake it, skipping the unnecessary extra dose of frying and making it a healthier option.


  • 1 cup chickpeas, soaked overnight
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp spices of your choice (such as cumin, coriander, or paprika)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup green leaves (such as parsley and coriander)
  • Food processor


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Drain the soaked chickpeas and add them to a food processor. Pulse until they are finely chopped.

  3. Add tahini, chopped onion, minced garlic, spices, olive oil, and green leaves to the food processor. Blend until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

  4. Scoop the mixture into small balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  6. Serve hot with pita bread, hummus, and your favorite vegetables.

Enjoy your healthy and delicious oven-baked falafel, inspired by the traditional recipe from Israel!
