Mine came out a little thin, so I thickened it with more peanut butter and some soy flour to get a dough-like consistency. (Great way to up the protein content even more!) I also upped the spices to compensate. It came out very good! (I used crunchy peanut butter because I like the texture). Note that this recipe makes approximately 40 individual balls, with four or five filling up one pita.

This recipe was very good. The recipe should be more specific regarding the use of creamy peanut butter. If you use a chunky peanut butter you get too much of a peanut concentration in your falafel.

The flavor was perfect but no matter what i did, it was too thin and wouldn't stay in a ball
