Air Fryer Falafel

By Sweetpeasandsaffron

The crunch on these air fryer falafels is going to knock your socks off! Easy to prepare, full of flavor, and very little oil required to cook them.

Baked falafels are a family favorite. We love to put them in falafel salad bowls, stuff them in pitas, and serve them up with super speedy tzatziki. But ever since I discovered how good they are cooked in the air fryer, the oven has just not been running as much 😉

Though made a different way than authentic falafels, this version has familiar flavors, but reduces the oil substantially. Using dried chickpeas that have been soaked overnight is the key to the crisp factor here, so be sure to skip the canned chickpeas this time. I promise it's worth it!
