Preheat the waffle iron on medium. Preheat the oven on its lowest setting.
Drain the soaked chickpeas and place them with the onion and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until blended but not pureed.
Add the parsley, olive oil, flour, salt, cumin, coriander, baking powder, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, and pulse until mostly smooth.
Coat both sides of the waffle iron grid with nonstick spray. For each fawaffle, place about 1⁄4 cup of batter in the waffle iron, leaving a bit of space between scoops for each to expand.
Close the lid of the waffle iron and cook for 5 minutes before checking. Remove the fawaffles when they are cooked through and evenly browned.
Repeat Steps 4 and 5 with the remaining batter.
Keep finished fawaffles warm in the oven. Serve them with the hummus and pita bread.
