Chickpea Gluten Free Pancakes with Spring Onion


These are really versatile stuffed with favourite savoury fillings and you can have a gluten free breakfast, lunch or dinner in no time.

I have stuffed them with sun dried tomatoes, feta and left over roast chicken today but you can really let your imagination run wild, scrambled eggs,  left over roast vegetables, meatballs and sauce, ham and cheese, tuna and mayo, potato curry, grilled fish, tomato salsa, chunky avocado, really, pretty much anything you can think of!

They freeze well too, pop a layer of baking parchment between each pancake and then wrap and seal them.

Makes 18.


150g gluten free plain flour

70g chickpea/besan flour

2 eggs

600mls milk

4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced finely

salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl, weigh out flours and whisk lightly to combine.

Make a well in the centre and crack the eggs into it.

Slowly, using the whisk begin to combine the eggs, as it thickens, slowly, add the milk, whisking until all combined into a smooth batter.

Add the onions and set aside for 15 mins if you have time.

Heat a heavy based frying pan, I use a small non stick pan, over a medium to low heat.

Add a couple of spoonfuls or a small ladle full of batter to the pan, using the spoon or ladle push the batter all over the base of the pan to form a thin layer.

Once you see the bubbles popping on the top of the crepe, use a fish slice and flip it over.

Cook for a minute or two until beginning to brown.

Set aside on a plate, covered with a tea towel while you cook the rest of the batter.

    1. Hi Goldenpudding, chickpea flour is used in dosa, pakoras and bhajis.
      In Italian cooking it can be used in a stove top pizza base that you whack under the grill at the end.
      I use it a great deal in savoury baking as the flavour is yum and it is good for us nutritionally too, bit of a win win! Ros.

    1. Thanks Jessie, I have been gluten free for four years, it takes a while to get used to cooking and baking without gluten but there are lots of great alternatives out there. My blog isn’t totally gluten free as I post what the rest of the family eat too but I try to make most things with a GF alternative. Ros.
