Baked Falafel Cookies R2

My first post and attempt at making these cookies was back in 2012, I've revamped this recipe since then and hope you enjoy! They're great for traditional falafel in pita sandwiches, on fresh crisp romaine leaves or even on their own. Great to bake and take as travel snacks–packed with protein and yumminess.
