Garbanzo Bean Flour is stone ground from rich and hearty whole garbanzo beans. It is high in fiber and a popular ingredient for gluten free baking.


Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas) are one of the creamiest and tastiest of beans.Chickpea flour made from this delicious bean lends a sweet, rich flavor to baked goods. Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour is freshly milled and 100% stone ground. Garbanzo beans are loaded with protein and dietary fiber and are a good source of iron. Garbanzo flour‚ also known as gram flour, chickpea powder and cici bean flour‚ is popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking and baking. Use it in dishes like falafel, hummus, socca, farinata, papadums and pakoras. It is also a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking. Try it in crackers, pizza crusts, and breads. Garbanzo bean flour also works well in cakes or quick breads with strong flavors like chocolate and pumpkin. It can also be used to thicken soups, sauces, or gravies. Use garbanzo bean flour to replace up to 25% of the flour in your baking to increase protein and fiber.

Many uses of Garbanzo Bean Flour
This garbanzo bean flour is great for breading items for frying like fish and tofu. I season it with salt and pepper. It's also a good addition to many baked GF recipes. A small amount like 2 Tablespoons added to something like a Dutch Baby recipe can help make a savory Dutch Baby that is perfect for serving with hot vegies and sauces. I also add it to cornbread recipes!

Another great GF flour
I have the chickpea flour cookbook and have made a few recipes. It makes a nice GF bread product, I have made the 'no corn bread' and the biscuits. Both very good. Be careful to not eat too much in the same day, as it is like a bean, until you get used to it.

What would be a way to try and make pancakes ? Like what portions ? Would I use eggs, almond drink.... ? Thanks
Brad T on May 9, 2018
I have never made pancakes personally with chickpea flour but I found a recipe which I have posted below:
1 cup chickpea flour (or besan/garbanzo flour)
1 cup water
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 spring onions
½ red chili, mild
1 tbsp olive oil (ghee would be perfect here, but not vegan)
½ tsp red chili flakes (I highly recommend this)
1 bell pepper
½ cup peas

Add the flour, water, turmeric, salt, pepper and chili flakes (if using) to a mixing bowl and give it a quick blend using a fork or an immersion blender Leave it to settle for a few minutes while you heat up the a tbsp of oil or ghee in a non-stick pan. The batter needs to look very runny!
Dice the veggies finely and add them to the mixture.
Use a tissue or similar (a spray oil would work wonders here) to ensure the bottom of the pan is coated well in oil.
Add about a ladle of the mixture and veggies when the pan is hot - a medium heat should be just right.
Cook for about 3 minutes - the mixture will quickly start to firm. If you’re using two pans, you can make two pancakes at the same time.
Make sure you use a large pan (or pans) here, you’re aiming for thin pancakes. They’re MUCH easier to handle!
Use a large spatula to help you flip the pancakes, adding more oil underneath if necessary. After another 2-3 minutes your pancake will be ready!
Keep it somewhere warm while you repeat with the second pancake, adding more oil when necessary.
Done! Add your desired toppings and enjoy. Remember - it’s important to eat these pancakes warm - don’t let them get cold!
Serving suggestions:
Any chutneys (red onion is a favourite of ours) yogurt dip, hummus, avocado, guacamole, Branston Pickle (if you can find it where you are it goes incredibly well!).
how much chick pea flour do I use in place of wheat flour to thicken stew?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That would depend on how much soup you have- take some broth and make a slurry in a bowl with maybe 2 tablespoons chick pea flour and a few tablespoons of broth. Then stir it into the larger pot of soup- you could add more the same way to your specific preference. Hope this helps.
If this product is GMO free why does it not state so on the packaging as some of your other flours?
rainne r on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this product is Non-GMO. Our packages are currently being updated and the symbol will be reflected on the new future packages. Every item from Bob's Red Mill is Non-GMO and you can read more about our sourcing practices here: https://www.bobsredmill.com/non-gmo
Is it safe to eat this flour raw? I used it with other ingredients to make veggie burgers, but I liked the idea of using the same mixture uncooked as a spread.
A shopper on Apr 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a raw product; we recommend baking or toasting before using. To toast garbanzo bean flour, spread flour evenly onto a baking sheet. Bake at 300°F for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until evenly toasted. Let cool.
Is the chickpea flour made from sprouted chickpeas?
jennifer v on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this product is made from raw garbanzo beans/chickpeas. They have not been sprouted.
Is garbanzo flour the same as garfava flour?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, "garfava" would refer to a Garbanzo Bean and Fava Bean Flour Blend. You can find that here: https://www.bobsredmill.com/gluten-free-garbanzo-fava-flour.html
Can this flour be used in place of wheat flour?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Yes, you can incorporate Garbanzo Bean Flour into your recipes - we recommend starting with 25% as it will behave differently than wheat flour in any recipe.
Is your Garbanzo Bean/Chickpea Flour organic?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, our Garbanzo Bean Flour (Chickpea Flour) is not organic.
Does this product contain any corn derivatives?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, there are no corn derivatives in the Garbanzo Bean Flour but it is packaged on shared lines in a facility that also handles corn. Despite stringent and thorough cleaning processes there is a possibility for cross contact.
I have a recipe that requires superfine chickpea flour. What is the consistency of this flour?
Patricia P on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our Garbanzo Bean Flour is very fine with a silky texture.
How long does it last and how should I store it?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This product is best kept in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, preferably the fridge or freezer. It will keep up to 18 months when stored properly.
Is this flour raw or roasted? My understanding is that most chickpea flours are roasted, but the recipe I am making requires raw flour.
Earl K on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our Garbanzo Bean Flour is made from raw garbanzo beans that have been harvested after they have dried on the vine.
