Chickpea Flour Pancakes


These chickpea flour pancakes are so fluffy and delicious! You will forget they are gluten free!

I have been grinding my own grains for years now and am always looking for new grains to grind into flour for different applications.

Several years ago, I came upon a post about grinding chickpeas into flour. I happened to have a lot of dried chickpeas in the pantry and decided to give it a try. It made the most beautiful, buttery flour!

It made perfect sense to make pancakes with this wonderful flour.

They turned out amazing and we decided we had to keep these in the rotation on our pancake Saturdays!

Being that these are gluten free make them great for those who still want to have pancakes on the weekends without the gluten!

Flour made from chickpeas is very airy, buttery, and mild in flavor. Making this flour the perfect pancake flour.
