My latest favorite vegan food blog is MELOMEALS: Vegan For $3.33 A Day. She has awesome recipes and I love everything I’ve made off of her site.
Tried out her Protein Pancakes yesterday morning, they were delicious! My daughter loves them and ate them again for breakfast this morning! I put the extra pancakes in the freezer so I can just pop them in the toaster oven when I need a quick breakfast.
This recipe calls for chickpea flour (also known as besan, garbanzo or gram flour) which is nutrient dense and reasonably higher in protein than other regular flours – 21 grams per 1 cup. It also has almost 10 grams of fiber per 1 cup, that’s 40% of your daily fiber needs. It’s also gluten-free for those who are avoiding gluten in their diets.
I found 2 – 35oz bags of Organic Chickpea Flour on Amazon for $14.62 / free shipping. I plan on using it to make flatbread pizza and wraps next!Tags: besan, chickpea flour, fiber, gluten-free, gram flour, pancakes, protein, protein pancakes
