  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add chickpeas, cilantro, parsley, onion and garlic. Pulse until chopped and well-combined, with some chunky texture.
  3. Add lemon juice, olive oil, cumin, turmeric, salt and cayenne pepper. Pulse a few times to combine.
  4. Add oat flour, starting with 1/2 cup. Pulse until a firm dough forms, adding more oat flour if necessary.
  5. Form 14-16 balls of dough, flatten them with your hands and place on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip. Bake for another 15 minutes.
  7. Optional: Broil on low for 5 minutes to get falafel extra crispy.
  8. Serve falafel on top of salad or in a pita sandwich!


*To make your own own oat flour, simply blend rolled oats into a fine flour using a high-speed blender or food processor.
