Place all ingredients except oil and baking powder in a food processor and pulse to mix about a minute but make sure not to mash.
Remove and put mixture in a bowl and add baking powder to the mix. If you have a falafel scooper, you can use that to make the falafel balls. Otherwise, you can shape it by hand into round patties about 1-1/2 to 2 inches in diameter.
Add coconut oil to a small 8 inch skillet about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in height. Fry on each side till deep golden brown.
