Recipe Ingredients:


  • Place your cooked vegetables into a clean tea towel and squeeze out any excess water.
  • Place them in a mixing bowl and add the seasoning. Mix well and make into medium sized balls.
  • Place them in the fridge for 2 hours so that they have the chance to firm up a bit.
  • In a blender mix together your coconut and gluten free oats and whizz until it resembles rough flour. Pour into a bowl.
  • Roll the veggie balls in the mixture and then place them in the air fryer in the grill pan.
  • Cook for 10 minutes at 200c/400f. Roll over and cook for a further 2 minutes at the same temperature on the other side.
  • Serve.


You will know that you have squeezed out enough liquid because it will make a ball and will look like a giant dough ball.
I prefer to use Bob’s Red Mill and create gluten free flour, but if you prefer you can use regular breadcrumbs.
If your mixture is not sticking together enough then I recommend that you add some extra oats to stiffen it with. We actually started off with a lot less oats and many that fell apart, so we adjusted the recipe accordingly.
