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.

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.

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?
