Falafel Waffle Falafel Waffle
You know you want to say it again.
It may seem strange to make a savory waffle, but I assure you that this Falafel Waffle is not awful. To make this falafel-like waffle, I used chickpea flour (aka garbanzo bean flour). You can find it at most grocery stores – I know Bob’s Red Mill makes a version.
I’m still new to waffle-making, but this one came out perfectly fluffy. I was amazed since I straight up forgot that I wanted to use baking powder!
I topped it with a #strangebutgood mix of sautéed mushrooms, cabbage, and swordfish tossed with my Healthy BBQ Sauce. If the swordfish is too much for you, you can use any sort of protein. Keep it vegan with tempeh, tofu, or more veggies!
As far as spices, I used my favorite savory combo – cayenne and garlic. You can play with it and use whatever you’re in the mood for. Cumin, oregano, onion powder… it would all be good here!
This might even work as a pancake… I’d add a little more coconut flour or reduce the water to get the batter thick enough.
- 3 T chickpea flour
- 1/2 T coconut four
- 1 tsp flax
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp garlic
- 1/4 C water
In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Stir in the water and set aside for 1-2 mins while the waffle make heats up. This allows the batter to thicken slightly.
Pour into waffle iron and cook according to your waffle maker’s instructions. Plate and top as desired.

It was suggested on Instagram that I call these Fawaffels. Brilliant… but I’d already made the image. #bloggerproblems
