Gram Flour Flatbreads Recipe

I feel like I’m cheating by calling this a recipe. With only 2 main ingredients and being so easy to make I don’t think I can really classify it as one?

These flatbreads are high in protein and gluten free. Winner!

img_3677Gram flour is made of ground chickpeas. In fact the one I have at the moment is ground chickpeas and yellow split lentils and cost about £2 for a 1kg bag from Tesco

I’m a little addicted to making these as they are so easy, super cheap, tasty and the nutritional stats add up nicely after a workout.

Nutritional stats per 10g flatbread (ish):

Carbs 5.7g
Protein 2.2g

Those are great ratios!


You Need:
Measuring Jug
Frying Pan

Gram Flour
Butter (for frying – margarine, coconut oil or anything else just doesn’t cut it)
Black Pepper
Tumeric (optional)
Cumin (optional)

There are no ingredient weights/measurements because I just guess.

  1. Chuck some flour in a jug
  2. Add a little cold water and whisk with a fork mixing away any lumps.
  3. Gradually add more water. The final consistently should be quite thin so it is easy to pour, making the breads thin and crispy.
  4. Add the seasoning of your choice – I like a pinch turmeric and cumin for their health benefits.
  5. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and pour just enough mixture to cover the base of the pan.
  6. You’ll know when to flip the bread as the edges will go brown.
  7. Flip it.
  8. Eat it.

I keep a batch of the mixture in the fridge with a fork in ready to whisk and cook.
Just give it a mix before you cook it as the flour can settle.

Excuse the not-so-glamourous pictures but I like to take them as it happens in my house and not have a picture-perfect set up.  I haven’t got time for all that 😂


Serving Suggestions:

  1. The breads are great served with scrambled eggs, wilted spinach and avocado on top
  2. Eaten as a side with curry or chilli
  3. Or my favourite way – hot out the pan, smothered with loads of butter, add extra salt, fold it up and eat it!  Delicious.
