Wet hands, shake off excess water and scoop up falafel mixture. Roll into a ball then press into a patty. Pack firmly in your hands.
Place on a parchment paper lined baking tray or reusable baking mat (the best thing ever).
Drizzle a little bit more evoo on top if you’d like.
Bake at 375 for 25 – 30 minutes, flipping halfway through so both sides get nice and golden brown and crispy.
