CHICKPEA FLOUR PANCAKES

Have you ever tried chickpea flour pancakes? They make a delicious savory plant-based breakfast that’s high in protein and fiber. Plus, they are super easy to make and can be ready in 15 minutes or less!

The pancakes are also vegan (egg-free), gluten-free, soy-free, and grain-free.

As for the toppings, I like to serve them with plant-based yogurt or vegan cheese spread garnished with chopped roasted almonds and herbs.

MEET THE INGREDIENTS

CHICKPEA FLOUR

Chickpea flour is made from dried chickpeas and is also known as garbanzo flour. It is one of the most nutrient-packed gluten-free flours available.

It is high in protein (1 cup contains more than 20 g of protein), fiber, and micronutrients and lower in carbs and calories than traditional wheat flour.

Being naturally gluten-free, it is great for people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or wheat allergy.  However, if you’re worried about cross-contamination, make sure you buy flour that is certified gluten-free.

The great thing about it is that you can use it in both, sweet and savory recipes. Use it to make bread, cookies, pizza dough, socca, pancakes, to thicken soups, sauces, and gravies, or as a crunchy coating.

When I make these I add sautéed veggies to the batter before I fry them.
