Hey guys today’s recipe is gluten free low fodmap sweet potato falafels. I adapted a recipe by @pinchofyum i love her blog so you should definitely go check it out. Her husband also runs a podcast called food blogger pro that is great and has lots of really helpful tips about everything to do with food blogging, its a great listen.

These are not traditional falafels as they don’t contain any chickpeas but instead sweet potato. Don’t worry though you wont miss them. They are also baked not fried for a healthier version. These have become one of my favourite meal preps recently. They are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle with a little extra crunch from the nuts. The recipe calls for almonds but you can leave them out if you are nut free or replace them with seeds instead.This recipe makes 9 falafels in total. I split them up into 3 meals of 3. Then i reheat them for 1 minute in the microwave when am ready to eat them. You could also eat them cold if you prefer. I pair them with salad, pasta or rice they go with most things so you can add what ever you like. The macros for one falafel is 1.8f 13.1c 2.6p.
