Chickpea Flour: For these Vegan Chickpea Flour Muffins, I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Garbanzo & Fava Bean Flour. What makes this flour substitute so great is that it’s not only gluten-free but it also includes a healthy protein that can make your baking more filling. Use this in doughs, baking, or in any of your favourite recipes. Chickpea flour is creamy and rich, lending a fantastic texture to baked goods, whether sweet or savoury. This specific blend of flour from Bob’s has a yummy earthy flavour and adds fiber and protein to any recipe I make with it.
How do you make savoury chickpea vegan muffins?
This recipe is actually quite simple to make. All you have to do is prep your muffin tin like normal, and in a large bowl mix together all the dry ingredients before adding the water and stirring the mix until it has a pancake-batter-like consistency.
If your mix is too clumpy, don’t be afraid of adding more water. Just making sure you only add a tbsp. at a time!
Once mixed well, add all the remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour the batter into your muffin tin and bake these babies up for around 30 minutes.
I like to garnish these with black salt, hot sauce, or fresh avocado. But the possibilities are endless here!
