Nutty Falafel Balls

3 cups cooked chickpeas or 2 cans rinsed and drained
1 cup finely chopped brazil nuts
1 cup finely chopped bok choy
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup all purpose gluten-free flour
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

In a large bowl, mash cooked chickpeas. Add brazil nuts and bok choy; mix until combined. Transfer in 2 batches to a food processor, processing each until mixture achieves a sticky texture. Return to bowl.

Preheat oven to 350˚ (180˚ C). Add olive oil, onion, flour, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper to chickpea mixture; combine until well mixed. With your hands, form mixture into 1 1/4-inch balls and place on baking sheet. Bake 40 minutes, turning balls over at the halfway point.
