Used for centuries in Middle Eastern and South East Asian cuisine, garbanzo bean flour is full of flavor and vital nutrients. Add this ancient ingredient to your pantry with Bob's Red Mill garbanzo bean flour! Also known as chickpea flour, gram flour, and besan, garbanzo bean flour is made by grinding garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) into a fine powder. Since they're not a grain, garbanzo beans are naturally gluten free; better yet, this flour is processed in Bob's Red Mill's gluten-free facility, where their products undergo stringent testing to ensure that they don't contain any traces of gluten. That makes this flour perfect for your gluten-free customers, including those with celiac disease! In addition to being gluten free, garbanzo bean flour has a rich, slightly sweet flavor very similar to the taste of chickpeas. It's also loaded with essential nutrients like protein, dietary fiber, and iron, making it a more nutritious alternative to traditional wheat flours!
In India, France, and Italy, garbanzo bean flour is used to make a light, unleavened pancake that can be eaten alone or used to wrap the ingredients of your choice. For a simple version, try using garbanzo bean flour, water, and a pinch of salt to form a batter that can be perfectly pan-fried. These pancakes can be used to create gluten-free wraps and flatbreads, and because they're vegan, they're perfect for many of your customers with dietary restrictions! Garbanzo bean flour can also be used to make a vegan cheese substitute; when mixed with water and cooked over medium heat until it reaches a roux-like consistency, it forms a creamy, cheesy sauce that's great for vegan dips and spreads.
Though it's not a 1-to-1 substitute for all-purpose flour, garbanzo bean flour is a versatile addition to your flour arsenal, whether you use it alone or combined with other flours. Garbanzo bean flour is an excellent solution to the perennial issue of texture in gluten-free baking; it has natural binding properties that mimic the "stickiness" of gluten to help bind your baked goods together and give them a sturdy-yet-tender texture that your customers will love! Use it to make savory baked goods like artisan breads, pizza crusts, and crackers. It's also great for sweet treats made with strong flavors that will stand up to the garbanzo bean flour's distinctive taste; use it in a chocolate fudge cake or a warm pumpkin bread!
