Baked Falafel (Dairy, Gluten and Egg Free)

By Irene Shaver @hhwife
Okay so traditional falafels are fried, however I do prefer them baked, a little less oil in the diet and of course I can put it in the oven and leave them while I make something else.  I am also thinking of multi-tasking ;)
These falafels are full of flavor.  We enjoy them with a large salad and some creamy dressing.
