Recipe: Baked Falafel Balls

Honestly, this recipe wasn’t that great. That’s what happens when I try and be creative with something like falafels. I have never had ‘real’ falafels; perhaps that is a good thing though for trying to make the recipe healthier. Next time I make these I am going to try looking online for some different recipes. I think I might of had too much onion in them or something. There are good, just not delicious. Here is the recipe anyway incase anyone wants to try them.
