Baked Chickpea Meatballs

I made these chickpea meatballs a couple of weeks ago, and they turned out great. They were so good, in fact, that I have been craving them the past few days. 

Baked Chickpea "Meatballs"

  • 2 Cups Chickpeas
  • 1/3 Cup Gluten Free Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseed
  • 3 Tablespoons Hot Water
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 8 cranks freshly ground black pepper (or really, however much you'd like)
  1. Heat the water and add the ground flaxseed to it. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a blender, pulse chickpeas until small crumbs form (almost fine).
  4. Mince the garlic.
  5. Add the chickpeas, flax-egg, garlic and the remaining ingredients to a big bowl and mix until combined.
  6. Shape into 2 Tablespoon size balls of dough and set on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  7. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, until slightly browned. Serve with sauce on spaghetti, and enjoy!
