Garbanzo Flour (Chickpea) 1LB
Chickpea flour is finely milled and 100% stone ground from dried chickpeas. Also known as garbanzo flour (or garbanzo bean flour), this gluten-free baking product can be used as a substitute for wheat flour. Chickpea flour is ideal for making falafel, pancakes, fritters and more. It's also packed with fiber, protein and iron.
What Does Chickpea Flour Taste Like? Chickpea flour has a creamy and mild nutty taste. It lends a slightly sweet, mellow flavor to baked goods and works well with just about any dishes.
How to Use Chickpea Flour:
Baking: Substitute chickpea flour for up to 1/4 of the flour in your baking. It can be substituted for wheat flour or gluten-free flours to increase the protein and fiber content of your baked goods.
Egg substitute: For vegans and those with egg allergies, garbanzo bean flour can be used as an egg substitute in baking. Simply whisk 1/4 cup of chickpea flour with a 1/4 cup of water to use as a substitute for 1 egg.
Thickener: A lesser known way of using garbanzo bean flour is as a thickener for soups, sauces, and gravies. It has a mild flavor so it won't overwhelm your dishes. Use it once your recipe is almost finished cooking.
