Garbanzo bean flour is also known as besan, gram flour, chickpea flour and cici bean flour which is popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking and baking.
You can use it in dishes like falafel, hummus, socca, farinata, papadums and pakoras.
It is also a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking. Try it in crackers, pizza crusts, and breads.
Garbanzo bean flour also works well in cakes or quick breads with strong flavors like chocolate and pumpkin. It can also be used to thicken soups, sauces, or gravies.
Use garbanzo bean flour to replace up to 25% of the flour in your baking to increase protein and fiber.
