Chickpea Flour Crepes

By Sunday, March 16, 2014 , ,

These versatile crepes work great with either sweet or savoury fillings and only require 2 ingredients to make- what could be easier? Chickpea flour has a nutty flavour and it's high protein, which makes for a satisfying meal.  I love these drizzled with raw chocolate sauce, chopped nuts and fresh or dried fruit


You will need:

1/3 cup (60g) chickpea (besan) flour
3/4 cup water


Simply combine the ingredients in a bowl using a whisk to eliminate any lumps and form a smooth batter. Leave for at least 30 minutes, but preferably longer, or even overnight. If you want a sweet batter you can add some vanilla extract, otherwise you can add herbs or spices. Then preheat a frying pan with a little coconut oil and pour 1/3 of the batter into the pan. Cook for a few minutes, then flip and cook on the other side. Repeat for the rest of the batter and enjoy!

  1. Hi Siobhan ! I made savory chickpea crepes like 2 weeks ago and found them to be a little dry. Would leaving the batter overnight help ? Thank you !

    1. Unfortunately this is the first time I have made them and I am not really sure, sorry Marion! Perhaps adding a little oil to the batter might help?

  4. I can't find chickpea flour here, do you recommend making your own, like, blending raw chickpeas until it turns into a flour sort of thing?... if not, what other flour would you recommend?

    1. I don't 100% know how that would work out... Have you looked in Indian supermarkets, that's where it is usually sold. If you wanted to make this with another flour I think you'd have to find another recipe, sorry!
