Mini Chickpea Flour Muffins Ingredients
You’ll need a few budget-friendly pantry staples to bake these homemade chickpea muffins:
- Chickpea flour (also known as garbanzo bean, besan or gram flour)
- Kalamata olives
- Red peppers
- Corn (fresh, frozen, or canned. I used fresh)
- Fresh parsley
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Himalayan black salt (also known as Kala Namak or black salt. Adds that sulfurous aroma similar to eggs and provides that egg-like flavor)
- Ground cumin, turmeric powder, ground red pepper, dried garlic
- Sesame seeds (for topping, optional)
As always, you can find the full recipe with a list of ingredients with measurements in a printable recipe card at the end of this post.

How to make mini chickpea flour muffins from scratch?
- Mix chickpea flour and water
First, start by preheating the oven to 400°F / 200°C. If not using a non-stick muffin tin, lightly grease with oil or use muffin liners. I used silicone muffin liners.
In a big bowl gradually mix chickpea flour and water. Whisk well to get a runny mixture without any lumps. Add the olive oil.
- Add veggies and spices
Next, add finely chopped veggies and spices. Mix again.
- Bake your frittata muffins
Fill each muffin cup with the batter. I used a 12 cup muffin tin and filled approximately 3/4 each cup or to the full (this may vary slightly depending on the veggies you’ll use). Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you like. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. If after baking for 35 minutes the center seems soggy, remove from the oven, and just place them on a cooling rack and let them cool. In this way, they’ll firm up and will be ready to eat.
- Serve and enjoy
Serve warm or at room temperature. Keep any leftovers on the kitchen counter for 1 day, refrigerated for 3-4 days. Freeze in freezer-friendly containers or bags for up to 2 months. Let them thaw before reheating. You can reheat in a toaster, microwave, or oven.
Here are some of my favorite options to serve these vegan breakfast muffins:
- Pair with this 5 minute avocado-dip and sliced tomatoes
- Serve with a freshly roasted spicey baby potatoes or this good-for-you Meditteranean potato salad
- East with vegan sour cream or a glass of non-dairy yougurt
- Spread with a filling roasted red pepper hummus
- Pair it with this fresh, low-calorie cucumber salad or a crunchy butter lettuce salad
