Can I Freeze Homemade Falafel?

Good Questions

Q: Because of an allergy to sesame seeds, I can only enjoy falafel made in my own kitchen. I have a great recipe, but it requires a good deal of prep work that makes satisfying a falafel craving on a whim a bit of a challenge.

I am wondering if falafel would take well to freezing. This way, I could make a large batch once in a while and have a falafel whenever the mood strikes me.

If freezing is a viable option, would it be best to freeze them uncooked or fully cook them before storing in the freezer? Finally, what would be the best re-heat method?
