Excellent and very healthy recipe! I agree that you can probably use a bit less bread crumbs if you do decide to double the recipe. I used 30 oz of garbanzo beans tonight, and this served 5 adults perfectly with a few falafel for leftovers tomorrow. Also, 1/4 large red onion was plenty, and I added less cumin and a tsp of coriander. I also added one egg and a little Greek yogurt, and I baked falafel patties--about the size of mini burgers or sliders. Used crushed garlic from a jar instead of fresh. Baked at 350 or so for 10 minutes per side on a couple of cookie sheets covered with a thin layer of olive oil, and the falafel were still crispy enough on the outside without all of the grease. Served with a modified version of Greek Veggie Salad II and sliced cucumbers, tomatoes, and baby lettuce along with tahini sauce and roasted garlic hummus on the side. Delicious! Also good with a sauce of Greek yogurt, a little dill and lemon juice.
