Chickpea Flatbread

A gluten-free alternative to traditional flatbreads


About this Recipe

By: Amanda

Gluten-free, yeast-free and preservative-free, this recipe requires just 4 simple ingredients, as bread should be made.

Makes around 3 thin flatbreads


Step by Step Instructions

  • 140g chickpea flour, or gram flour
  • 280ml water
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • 1 ½ tbsp melted coconut oil (plus more for brushing griddle)
Step 1

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl.  Cover and leave to rest for 2-3 hours at room temperature.

Step 2

Preheat the grill and brush a cast iron griddle or frying pan with coconut oil. Heat under the grill for 2-3 minutes, then remove and pour on a thin layer of batter. Cook under the grill until it has firmed and is well browned, especially around the edges. This can take 2-4 minutes. Continue to make the flatbreads in this way, until you have used all the batter, brushing the griddle with oil and pre-heating in between.

Step 3

Season with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with olive oil to serve.  Best served hot.


Chickpeas are a good source of soluble fibre, which is important for gut health, as well as vitamins and minerals that are required for healthy skin, hormone balance and energy production.
