Chickpeas (1 can)
Onion (1 small, very finely diced)
Garlic (1-2 cloves)
Cumin (1/2-1 tsp)
Paprika (1/2-1 tsp)
Cayenne peppers (1/2 tsp)
Flour (I used a mix between gram flour and oat flour, but regular flour should be fine)
Baking powder (1/4-1 tsp)
Salt & pepper
Chili flakes, garlic powder, other veggies, fresh coriander, other herbs & spices, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, nuts, quinoa, breadcrumbs
Simply mash everything together with a fork (or food processor if you have one), roll small spoonfuls into little balls, and bake. Use as much or as little flour as you need, make sure it is not too sticky or too dry. The balls should hold together easily. You can also make falafel patties and fry them. Serve with salad, pita bread, etc.
