Dust off your apron and get ready to make my baked peanut butter falafels. They are crunchy on the outside, but moist and fluffy on the inside.
I love chickpeas for its delicious nutty flavour and creamy texture.I don't know if you have noticed, but it has sort of heart shape and looks similar to hazelnuts.
I have used normal tinned/canned chickpeas. You can buy dried chickpeas and let it soak overnight before cooking or you can be as lazy as I am and just use the tinned version. It is so versatile and can be used as the base for cooking and baking.
It belongs to the legume family and is packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber and is very low in fat.
About Baked Peanut Butter Falafels
I am sure you have eaten falafels before, but my baked peanut butter falafels have an added protein boost by using peanut butter.
You can skip this part, but trust me when I say these falafels will add some spice to your midweek meal.
I also add half a teaspoon of turmeric, which is a key spice for all of you curry lovers out there, but also has amazing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The falafel mixture should have a coarse texture. This will ensure a crisp outside and a moist inside. Btw. Have you tried my homemade peanut butter hummus yet ?
