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.

    Refined Sugar-Free Quinoa Digestives: Fiber Rich, Nutrient Dense, Sugarless Quinoa Recipe

    Have you heard of quinoa digestives? I did an Internet search to find it out, but couldn't trace any quinoa digestives recipe. Perhaps we have yet not moved to supergrains when it comes to digestives. When it comes to digestives, most of us can't think beyond whole wheat flour and oats. Perhaps dgestives require fiber-rich oats because it gives the biscuit the perfect digestives structure. I love oats so much so that I have compiled a collection of over 200 oats recipes. Now coming to quinoa digestives recipe, I have tried out too many digestives, including amaranth digestives, pistachio digestives, Mcvities digestives, and Nutri choice-like digestives. This time I wanted to skip whole wheat and include quinoa. Yes, if you remember, I have already shared a few quinoa recipes here, including quinoa nankhatais without baking soda/baking powder.

    What I did next was exactly this!
    My goal with each recipe is to get the better out of me!  Quinoa substitutes whole wheat

    Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

    Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
    Of course, not!

    You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.

    Ever since my airfryer homecoming, I have always chosen to go for airfryer cookies, and not touched my convection ever since. That's the beauty of airfryer baking.

    Okay, so let's come back to the badam cookie recipe. Did I say this is a no raising agent cookie recipe?
