Add chickpeas to a food processor or blender and blend for a few seconds.
Incorporate the rest of the ingredients (except the flour) and mix to combine. Don’t overblend, you want a chunky texture.
Add the flour and pulse just until it’s mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
Place the mixture in a bowl, cover, and let stand in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the waffle maker. Once the waffle maker is ready, you can generously coat with non-stick spray or some oil (extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil are my favorite ones). We don’t do this, but it’s up to you.
Make balls with your hands and place them in the waffle maker. I placed two every time.
Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. My falafel waffles were ready in 7 minutes.
