Paleo Falafel

These falafel balls are not like the traditional falafel you may find in greek restaurants. Traditional middle eastern falafel is made with chickpeas and fava beans. These falafel balls are more on the nutty side and still very tasty. We also made a tahini dressing to go with it. If you haven’t had or made tahini dressing before then go do it now! its so good!


1 cup ground almonds

1/3 cup boiled sweet potato

1/2 onion

1.5 tsp garlic powder (or you can use real crushed garlic)

1 tsp rosmary

2 tbsp coconut flour

2 tsp cumin powder

2 tsp light tahihi paste

3/4 cracked black pepper

1/2 tsp Himalayan pink seas salt

1/4 cup mixed nuts

2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1 tbs water

4 tbsp coconut oil



  • Add all the ingredients except nuts, bicarbonate  of soda, water and coconut oil to the food processor and pulse until blended
  • pulse in the mixed nuts until more of a paste
  • mix bicarbonate of soda and water together until dissolved
  • lightly wet your hands and roll the falafel into balls
  • heat one tbsp coconut oil and lightly fry the falafel

Tahini dressing

1/3 cup tahini paste

2 cloves garlic

1/2 tbsp lemon juice

2 tbsp water


Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor and serve


We served ours with spinach  and made into a salad. is where we found the recipe from and adapted it to our preference.
