Here are 9 of the best gluten-free garbanzo bean flour recipes. All of these recipes call for garbanzo bean FLOUR not whole canned garbanzo beans. Our first garbanzo bean recipe compilation post was such a success that I decided to do some more digging and find more of the best gluten-free garbanzo bean flour recipes.
I love garbanzo bean flour because it is naturally gluten-free and has a nutty, almost “golden” taste to it. I dare you to be adventurous and try something new. You may be surprised how good garbanzo bean flour tastes.
Remember that GARBANZO BEAN FLOUR, CHICKPEA FLOUR, GRAM FLOUR, and BESAN flour are all the SAME THING! So if a recipe calls for chickpea flour, don’t fret, you can use garbanzo bean flour because it is the same exact ingredient. An interesting fact is that if you look at the ingredients of what is called gluten-free flour, the first ingredient is usually garbanzo beans.
Wondering where to find chickpea flour? I like to either buy this on Amazon or you can make your own by buying dried garbanzo beans which I found in the bulk section at my local Winco grocery store. Put them in a blender and blend them until they turn into flour. Easy Peasy and a whole lot cheaper.

Garbanzo Bean Flour Recipes
1. Garbanzo Bean Flour Pancakes – Gluten Free Daddy
I’ve made these pancakes tons of times and I think they are the best gluten-free pancakes I’ve had. They keep me satisfied for hours plus they are high in complex carbs and protein. I eat them for breakfast quite a bit because they are an easy solution for a quick easy gluten-free breakfast. I don’t like the texture of “normal” pancakes especially if they aren’t cooked the way I like them. I have found that these have a little thicker texture and hold up to syrup better. You should really try these pancakes.

5. Tandoori Sweet Potato Socca Pizzas – Eat Love Eat
I wouldn’t really call these pizzas but they resemble somewhat of a pizza with a bread-like base with the avocado sauce and toppings on it. It is fun that they are smaller which works well with children. It can be helpful and fun anytime our children can custom make their own version of dinner. One of my daughters hates cheese and a different daughter loves cheese but hates chicken. If we were to never use those to ingredients you can see how much of a problem that would make!
