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.

    Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

    When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


    I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

    You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

    Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?
