Oven baked falafels

I absolutely adore this recipe of oven-baked falafels. They are the easy solution to your quick and healthy weeknight meals. Basically, you throw everything in your food processor and you let it do the work #Yesplease. Once that’s done, you scoop out the mixture and up in the oven! The best in all that is that they can be used in a wrap sandwich, in a salad, or even as a vegan hamburger patty.
