Sweet Potato and Chickpea Baked Falafels

These baked Falafels have become a favourite in our house.
They are so easy to make and involves no frying.
They are crispy on the outside and soft in the inside just like traditional falafels.
Don't let the combination of ingredients put you off, I promise you these are a big hit!
You can enjoy these falafels in a pitta with salad and mint and yogurt sauce, in wraps or with a big salad, the choice is yours :)

Ingredients :
1 large sweet potato (baked)
1 can can of chickpeas
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp of cumin and coriander powder (mine is mixed)
1 ts smoked paprika
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp curry powder
1 ts Garlic powder
sriracha to taste
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 cup of chickpea flour/plain flour

Method :
Preheat your oven to 180/350

Add the chickpeas to a large bowl and roughly mash them leaving some texture.

Now add the inside of the baked sweet potato and mash it together with the chickpeas.

Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix till well combined.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper, you may need two depending on the size of falafels that you make.

Roll bite size balls of the mixture and put them on the tray and gently flatten with your fingers.

Bake for 10 minutes on each side.

Enjoy however you like to eat them :)

Enjoy :)
