Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes (Packed with Protein!)

The main ingredient to this pancake is………..chickpea flour! With other additions such as Chia, Flax and Cacao, its packed with essentials for a good morning, and leaves out the ingredients that weigh you down. Note: Mine had a bit of a doughier texture than normal pancakes.  I’m still working out the exact measurements to get them closer to normal pancakes.   

Ingredients (Serves 3 – 4)

  • 3/4 C Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1 T Coconut Flour
  • 1 T Raw Cacao
  • 1 T Chia & Flax (I used this blend) but you could easily add about 1/2 T of flax and chia powder)
  • 1 t Baking Powder
  • 1 t Cinnamon
  • 1/4 C Agave (You can also use some stevia – this helps get away from the bean-y dough flavor)
  • Water
  • Optional: Maple Syrup
  • Oil


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Add water slowly as needed until you reach a consistency slightly thicker than traditional Pancake Batter. Mix well until all chunks are gone.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat with a little oil.
  3. Cook like you would a normal pancake, about 3 minutes on each side. Avoid making the pancakes too large or thick or they will be difficult to flip.
  4. Serve drizzled with Agave and if you’d like Maple Syrup, or any other topping you enjoy!
