Set them aside to add later. Wash broccoli and add to large bowl after grinding in a food processor. Peel and chop potatoes. Chop the onion and add the onion and potatoes to the food processor. Grate in the food processor and press with paper towels to remove the moisture. Add minced garlic, egg, baking powder, chickpeas and salt and pepper to the mixture and mix until all ingredients are blended. Drop the mixture on the olive oil coated pan in the size of one inch balls. Using a spatula or you hand, flatten them into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes then turn over the pancakes and bake for another 10 minutes until they are crunchy and brown.
