Speedy Gluten Free Falafels & Chickpea Flat breads

Falafel 1I love falafels, they are just soooo tasty!!!! So many recipes are quite complicated and take a while due to having to soak chickpeas for agesss. When I discovered this recipe I was very sceptical to how nice they would be considering from start to finish they only take about 10 mins.


I decided that the falafels by themselves simply wasn’t enough chickpeas, I may or may not be obsessed! So I decided to make these gorgeous Chickpea Flat breads/ Pancakes they are somewhere in between a pancake and a flat bread.

Ingredients (Two People):


  • 120g (1 Cup) Chickpea (Gram) Flour
  • 2 tsp  Ground Corriander
  • 2 tsp  Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Coriander Leaf (Fresh or Jar)
  • 130 ml Boiling Water
  • 5 tbsp Oil

Flat bread/ Pancakes

  • 120g (1 Cup) Chickpea (Gram) Flour
  • 60ml (1/2 Cup) Cold water


  • 4 tbsp Cream Cheese
  • 2 tsb Coriander Leaf


  1. Mix all the falafel ingredients (except the oil) either by hand or stand mixture.
  2. Heat the oil and keep on a medium heat
  3. Use a tbsp spoon to spoon out the mixture into balls and place in the hot oil
  4. Turn the falafels occasionally – they will be ready when they are browned all over
  5. Whilst the falafels are cooking- pop the flat bread ingredients into a bowl and mix until you get a thick pancake like batter.
  6. Once the Falafels are ready take them out of the pan and put to one side
  7. Then ladle the batter into the pan that the falafels and cook and flip like a pancake.
  8. To make the dip/sauce simply mix the coriander into the cream cheese.
  9. Then plate up and enjoy 🙂
