You can use normal or gluten-free plain flour instead but the chickpea flour does give you some added protein. Glyn quite likes them cooked a little longer so they become crisp like the edge of a thin pizza crust and you can crumble them over your meal to add texture, but I prefer them soft and they are nice as a substitute for bread sometimes. Thank you, Lindsay!

I have been having so much fun in the kitchen lately, as I’ve been experimenting with gluten-free bread baking!  And I’ve come up with a flatbread recipe that I have to share with you: Chickpea Chapati!  Oh, you’ll love them!
