15 of the Best Gluten Free Chickpea Flour Recipes

15 of the Best Gluten Free Chickpea Flour Recipes

I found 15 of the best gluten free chickpea flour recipes and have listed them here for you.  It was a lot easier to find chick pea flour recipes than I thought.  Chickpeas are a legume that contain lots of protein and fiber and they have a great nutty flavor.  Chickpeas are most popular in countries such as India, Pakistan, Turkey, and Australia but they are becoming more popular in the United States especially with people who are allergic to gluten. I happen to like Indian food a lot and I found some great Indian recipes that are included in this post. However, there are a variety of recipes in this post so if you don’t happen to love Indian food as much as I do, then there are some other great options to try. If you are new to cooking with chickpea flour or are a lover of it, I hope that at least a few of these recipes will speak to you.

Note: As I have mentioned in other posts chickpea flour, garbanzo bean flour, gram flour, and besan flour are the same thing.

    I stopped eating wheat flour not because of celiac but for skin issues. In addition I find that this way I naturally avoid sweet stuff… However, I see your have mostly cookies and other dessert options in your list of how to use chick pea flower and I am very disappointed!

    Thank you so much for including my Gujarati pudla recipe in your list of recipes. The various brands sold in UK supermarkets and Indian stores are all of good quality. It’s best to but in small quantities and store it in air tight containers and use it up as soon as you can.

    Hey Rebecca! Hope you are well… I’m in LOVE with chickpea flour. I use it all the time, especially for sweet things. I just created (dairy-free + grain-free + vegan) ice cream donut sandwiches using chickpea flour… they were out of this WORLD! Great roundup :)

    The Original Italian Flatbread are called Panelle Siciliane and it is an antique recipe for this type of food in Sicily, we are eating the panelle only with Bread and sometimes together with roasted aubergines, the recipe is very easy, Chickpeas flour, salt, sunflower oil, parsley and some black pepper :)

    Look it up!!

    Thanks for your recipes, very interesting

    Great recipes! Can’t wait to try them. Hope you don’t mind, but I am linking to your post in a post of mine on healthy eating. Had planned to link to a description of what besan is, but this is a whole lot more interesting.

    I’ve tried garbanzo bean flour before but the taste was so strong. Do you thing some brands are better? What do you use?
