What is chickpea flour good for

Naturally gluten-free chickpea flour

In my opinion, every kitchen pantry needs a bag of chickpea flour. Why? Because chickpea flour, also known as besan, gram, or garbanzo bean flour, is a great substitute for regular wheat flour. Chickpea flour is high in protein and rich in folate, iron, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese. Since it is very nutrient-dense and naturally gluten-free, it is a suitable alternative for people with celiac disease, wheat allergy, or gluten intolerance. Moreover, chickpea flour is protein-packed and unique flavored with surprisingly binding power, convenient for gluten-free and egg-free baking.

  2. Form and bake the patties

    I used 1/4 cup to scoop the batter and form the patties with my hands. You can use an ice cream scoop or use your hands only. Place them on the baking sheet and press them down slightly, to flatten. Bake for about 25 minutes, until golden from both sides and cooked through. You don’t need to flip them over while baking.
