This delicious falafel wrap recipe is healthy comfort food at its best! Crispy falafel patties are baked instead of fried, wrapped in a whole wheat pita, and topped with spinach, tomato, and a creamy hummus sauce.
Vegan: Falafel is made with plant-based ingredients so it’s naturally vegan and easy to make gluten-free using oat flour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine chickpeas and all ingredients for falafel (except for the pitas, spinach, tomatoes, baking powder, and nonstick spray) in a food processor, and give them a good chop.
Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, add the baking powder, and stir together. Using a potato masher, mash any big chunks that remain.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and spray thoroughly with olive oil nonstick spray.
One at a time, take spoonfuls of mixture in your hands and form 15 balls, each about the size of a ping pong ball, and gently place them on the baking sheet. Spray the top of each ball with olive oil nonstick spray, for a total of about a 2-second spray.
Bake the falafel in the oven for 15 minutes or until the bottoms become golden brown.
