I’ve been seeing a TON of recipes recently for baked goods and bread, but I don’t want to leave out my gluten-free and vegan friends—or those who are trying to ration their supply of fresh eggs during quarantine. I’ve been hanging on to this recipe for a while to share even though I’ve made it quite a few times now. There are so many delicious combinations you can make for the filling but this is the one I keep coming back to. 

 

What I love about chickpea flour is that it’s high in fiber (about 6-8 grams per serving) and provides about 6 grams of plant protein per serving, so it will keep you full for a good long while. I love to have one or two of these as an easy breakfast, but they’re also delicious cut up and tossed into a salad. They also freeze well so are great if you want to make a bigger batch so you can stock your freezer.
