Tasty Quick Healthy Crackers With Chickpea Flour Gluten Free

healthy crackers with chickpea gluten free


Is chickpea flour gluten free? This is one of the most common questions asked today. Ever since gluten was presented as a beast. Well, gluten is not that bad for everyone. It is harmful for only those who suffer from celiac disease or allergies. For everybody else, gluten is safe.

So I have come up with the tastiest and healthiest cracker recipe for those looking for chickpea gluten free snacks.

I simply loved the wheat-oat crackers that I prepared a few days back. I have got some amazing reviews on the sesame cracker recipe that I baked with whole wheat flour.

Here's some feedback on the same.


This time I wanted to try making crunchy bites with chickpea flour to make a gluten free savory snack for Diwali. I was not surprised to bake the best and healthiest crackers ever! I plan to bake one batch for my parents in Patiala as a Diwali gift.

What are your plans for diwali? If you plan to offer a healthy Diwali gift to someone special, go for this recipe or the sesame crackers. They would love you even more!

A few words on chickpea flour:
It is

  • gluten free - means no allergy threat to you
  • rich in iron, protein, and fiber - means it is a complete grain
  • has a good amount of potassium, manganese, magnesium, 
  • a versatile flour - can be used for making sweets, savories, snacks, healthy crackers, desserts (hmmm...my mind has gone into thinking mode)
  • comprises 40% dietary fiber
So how do you use chickpea flour or gram flour, as it is commonly known across India?

  • Pakodas - fried or nonfried - I often make chickpea fritters in appe pan and you won't believe they taste so light, healthy, and delicious..I have even experimented with this unique blend of chickpea and rice flour to make a no bread bread pakoda.

    Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

    The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

    Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





    Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

    The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

    The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



    Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











    Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



    Ingredients
    1 cup- oat flour
    3/4 cup- whole wheat
    1/4 cup- bran
    1/4cup- ragi

    Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

    While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

    Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

    When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
