Falafels are an Egyptian fritter recipe traditionally made with chickpeas or fava beans mixed with herbs and spices.
If you would like to try a healthier variation of the classic recipe, we will show you how to make Oven Baked Black Bean and Sweet Potato Falafels.
Why Black bean falafels you ask? Well, black beans are awesome! They are high in fibre, iron, folate, and antioxidants. We used sweet potatoes instead of chickpeas because they are just as yummy but with fewer carbs and lots of vitamin A!
Unlike the original recipe where falafels are cooked by deep-frying, here we just coat them in a little olive oil and then bake them in the oven, making them low in fats.
Our falafel recipe is also vegan and gluten-free, making them suitable for almost everybody!
