Falafel Patties

Here is an easy way to make this traditional Middle Eastern dish by using our Garbanzo Bean Flour. Serve inside pitas with tomato, lettuce and tahini sauce.

  • 1 cup Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Parsley Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Granules
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Water (hot)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil for frying


Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and blend thoroughly. Add the lemon juice and hot water to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes.
In a frying pan, heat oil on medium-high heat until hot. Add the falafel batter by the tablespoon and flatten slightly. Fry on both sides until golden brown. Place on paper towel to drain oil. Depending on the size of your frying pan, batter will need to be cooked in a couple batches. Makes 12 falafel patties.

I love this recipe and make it regularly for a meat free night. Easy to assemble, very light and tasty.

My kids love this and they are so easy to make with the ingredients being so simple and on hand! I use these babies instead of chicken nuggets. They are super diverse to. Change em up, add different spices. Just love em!

I love this recipe. Its super tasty and very easy.

If I have a little more time, Ill make some tahini dressing. If not, Ill put out a little store-purchased hummus to smear on these. Yes, thats garbonzo ontop of garbonzo, but its tasty!

tried these last night, they were tasty. Not much like regular falafel, but very good. Will definitely make these again and experiment with the spices.

Very yummy, easy and quick! Not totally a "falafel" but reminiscent of one :) Will definitely make again!

Very easy to make and yummy!! I added pepper and chili powder for a little kick, shaped them into balls, and deep fried them.

I have now made this several times. It is so easy and very good. I just made gazpacho and I'm going to make some of these falafel patties to go with it for a nice summer meal. Thanks for the easy dish.

Fabulous! Really tasty. Next time I'll try baking them to avoid the oil.

I made these tonight and we both found them delicious. Didn't need to use all the oil for frying as I had a green nonstick pan. I put a dab of hot pepper hummus on mine.

Made these to see if they might be a make-ahead mix for hiking the Appalachian Trail. Very good. Do not taste exactly like the ones I ate in the Middle East, but still very good. Thanks Bob's!

Simple, quick, gluten free, delicious, AND kid approved! Will be a regular in our home!

This came out more like falafel pancakes, not real falafel. The taste was ok, but the texture is all wrong. It's bready, and in a pita I felt like I was eating a sandwich filled with bread. It might be ok as a chicken nugget substitute with different spices, as another had mentioned.

Super simple, delicious falafel without a ton of oil! My family loved them!
brushjl February 8, 2015
these were just ok, better including fresh coriander. loved the garlic. can't help but think that boiling and mashing garbanzo beans would be better, but this is certainly easierl

This is the best recipe for this brand of garbanzo flour i have found so far! and what do you know, its on the back of the package!

I bake it in well greased mini muffin tins as I cant stand the smell of frying oil. It works out pretty good, 400 F for 15 - 20 minutes, flipping once.
