Powered Falafels anyone?

Protein and Power greens packed my quick, healthy & guilt free falafel fix for weekday or anytime lunch! Kids couldn’t tell that these falafel balls had power greens in them not cilantro!😘 win win for this mom!


I added blanched & drained power greens, almond flour & Indian spices to these falafels today. Cooked them in my @gourmia air fryer to keep it healthy. Result was yummilicious! It took me only 35 mins total to make everything including the fresh hummus😍


You can serve these as an appetizer or snack too!
