Lightened-Up, Oven-Baked Chickpea Falafel Recipe

Last Update: April 3, 2024

These lightened-up chickpea patties get started on the stovetop and finished in the oven, giving them the crunchy outer layer usually achieved with deep-frying, only with less mess. They’re wonderfully addictive on their own or as the main component of a simple pita sandwich, with parsley, cucumbers, cabbage, and yogurt sauce.

Chickpea Falafel Recipe


1 cup Thrive Market Organic Almond Flour, packed
1 pouch Thrive Market Organic Chickpeas, mashed
1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Tahini
3 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce)
1 large onion, finely diced
2 carrots, peeled and finely diced
1 bunch parsley, chopped
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Cayenne Pepper
1 tablespoon sumac (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Form the mixture into patties about 2 inches wide.

Warm a drizzle of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook patties for 2 minutes on each side, until browned and crispy. Transfer patties to the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes until cooked through.
