Chickpea Flour Crepes
Chickpea Flour Crepes- just 3 ingredients to make these light and delicious crepes. Each one packs 9 grams of protein + 8 grams of fiber! (vegan + gluten-free)
When you decide what to eat for each meal, what’s the number one thing you try to focus on?
Is it protein or fat? Maybe sugar and carbs? Or are you just like, screw it, I eat what I want to eat and I don’t care about the numbers?
For me, it’s all about balance. I like knowing there’s a good bit of protein and healthy fat, not too much sugar and the right kind of carbs (i.e. complex carbs) in my meals. But I’m not going to deny myself a donut or a few handfuls of potato chips, if that’s what I feel like in the moment. I would go crazy if I didn’t give in to my cravings every now and then.
That said, I think adopting healthy eating as a part of your lifestyle means learning to crave nutritious foods. Just because it’s good for you doesn’t mean it has to taste like cardboard. It also doesn’t have to be insanely difficult to make.
Case in point, these chickpea flour crepes. They’re basically like pancakes but only require a couple of ingredients to make. And the chickpea flour is a great source of protein, fiber, and iron which means they’ll fill you up and keep you full for hours.
I like to pack them full of even more nutrition by adding hummus, avocado, shredded carrots and organic greens like Dole’s Organic 50/50 Mix.
I was so excited when Dole reached out to ask me if I’d be interested in trying their new organic salad line because I think it speaks huge volumes to see an established corporation like that starting to see the value in committing to organic practices.
Plus with their ability to reach areas in the U.S. that don’t have access to local produce; it means that everyone can have the opportunity to purchase healthy, sustainable food.
In addition to the several varieties of organic greens, they also offer salad kits that come with different toppings and dressings. All you have to do is put everything on a plate and serve. Eating your vegetables doesn’t get much easier than that!
Chickpea Flour Crepes
Yield: 4 crepes
Prep Time: 5
Cook Time: 10
Total Time: 15
- 1 and 1/4 cups garbanzo bean flour
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 cup hummus
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 1 cup shredded carrot
- 4 handfuls Dole Organic 50/50 Mix
- hemp ranch dressing for topping
In a blender, combine the garbanzo bean flour, water, salt and garlic powder. Blend on high until smooth. Allow to sit while you heat the skillet.
Lightly grease a large non-stick skillet and warm over medium-high heat. Pour in 1/4th of the batter at a time and cook until the edges start to bubble, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip and cook the opposite side until firm. Continue this step until you have 4 crepes.
Top each crepe with hummus, avocado, carrots, and 50/50 mixed greens. Serve with ranch dressing and enjoy!
