(1 flatbread)

120g chickpea flour

235g of water

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 

½ tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 475 F (245 C) with a cast-iron skillet or a cake pan inside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the chickpea flour, water, 1 tbsp of olive oil, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  3. Using a potholder, remove the preheated skillet/pan from the oven and add the remaining tbsp of olive oil to coat the bottom and the sides of the skillet. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until the flatbread is well-browned and crisp around the edges. 



  • Add some spices on the surface, such as rosemary or thyme during the last 10 minutes of baking. You can also add spices to the batter in step 2. I like adding fennel seeds to help with bloating (mainly because you’re using chickpeas that are well known for causing gas during digestion).



Chickpeas are a complete food as they are a good source of veg proteins and carbohydrates. They have a low glycemic index which makes them ideal for keeping the blood sugar down while maximizing energy levels. This type of legume is rich in minerals, including calcium, iron, and phosphorous, which are necessary for hormonal health. Chickpeas are also rich in fiber that helps keep the gut microbiome healthy and well-functioning.
