Preheat oven to 400°F. Heat medium skillet with 1 tbsp olive over medium heat. Once skillet is hot, add garlic and onion and cook until translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
Grind the oats in a food processor until broken up but not turned into flour. Set aside in bowl. In same food processor, add the sun-dried tomatoes and basil and process until blended, about 15 seconds.
In large mixing bowl, add drained chickpeas, garlic and onion and mash until the chickpeas are completely mashed. (There can a few whole chickpeas remaining for some texture) Mix in ground oats, sun-dried tomato mixture, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, turmeric, salt, pepper, cinnamon and one egg. You want it to just be able to form balls so if too wet add more ground oats or if too dry add a little more oil.
Use ½ measuring cup and scoop out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press down to desired thickness. It should give you 8 patties. Bake in oven for 20 minutes before flipping and bake another 20 minutes. This should give you enough consistency to be able to freeze or cook the rest of the way to eat now. (We usually eat them for 2 nights and then freeze the rest. Great to have when you don't feel like cooking)
If eating now, heat a medium skillet over medium heat with enough oil to cover bottom of skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side. If using cheese, add after flipping. Add toppings of your desire and serve immediately.
