2 tbs finely grated parmesan
2 tbs plain flour

Mash the chickpeas in a bowl.
Add the chickpeas, onion, parsley, parmesan and flour to the sweet potato and combine. Season with pepper.
Divide the mixture into 10 portions and shape each portion into a patty.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
Place extra parmesan on a plate. Press patties in parmesan to coat. Place on the lined tray.
Spray with olive oil spray. Bake in oven, turning once, for 30 minutes or until golden.
