A flavorful and fresh-tasting falafel patty that’s healthy too since it’s baked instead of fried.
Combine garbanzo beans, parsley, cilantro, onion, garlic, eggs, jalapeno, flour, olive oil, cumin, coriander, baking soda, and salt in the bowl of a food processor; process until mixture is coarsely pureed. Transfer falafel mixture to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 8 hours.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Remove falafel mixture from the refrigerator. Add more flour if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, and form into 20 small patties. Place patties on a baking sheet.
Cook in the preheated oven until patties are golden brown and feel dry to the touch, but still give a little when you press the middle, about 25 minutes.
