1. Heat the oven to 375°. Place the greens and chickpeas in a food processor, and blend until chunky.
2. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, spices, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper, and process until a thick, slightly chunky paste forms. You may need to add more olive oil, you want the mixture to be scoopable.
3. Scoop the mixture into patties, about 2 Tablespoons for each patty. Coat the falafel in the breadcrumbs and place on a baking sheet. Spray the falafels with a light coat of olive oil cooking spray.
