    I was at a concert a few weeks ago and, with my stomach growling, I headed over to the concessions area. After realizing that I would be waiting for 45 minutes for food I turned away and sat back down in my camping chair. Hunger caught up with me during the opening acts so I made my way back to find no lines and very little food left.

    But there was some falafel remaining so I jumped on it. It hit the spot, and made me want to go home and make more.

    I came to the flour part of the recipe and thought, why not try coconut flour? So this recipe is based on my original recipes, except this time I used coconut flour. And the results: great texture and flavor, a little lighter, and just coconut flour. So this is my new favorite falafel.

    If you’re a fan of falafel but want to stay grain-free and gluten-free, you’re going to love the flavor and texture of this recipe. It can easily be made nut-free using a seed butter, and it stores and freezes well. It’s a win all around.

      Dear Erica, Finally a great falafel recipe with a substitute for the chickpeas. Instead of almond butter I had to use sunflower seed butter but the taste is absolutely ‘authentic original’.
      Thank you so much!

      Hi Erica! Great website! I tried the chili chicken stir fry and loved it! Can’t wait to try more. 🙂 Just wondering what food processor you use and what size? I only have a small cuisinart one and am looking for a durable, large sized one. Thanks!
