Reader Recipe: Bean pancakes!

Hey all (all 2 members of this forum- hopefully we will see some growth cuz I wanna know what y’all are eating!) –

I tried making bean cakes this week cuz I need a base for eggs. I tried mashing them up with an egg and frying them (they fell apart). Then I discovered bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo and Fava bean FLOUR. Super easy.

I mix one cup of flour with one cup of water and a little oil (add more or less water depending on how thick you like your cakes). Pour it on a hot griddle and voila! You got yerself some yummy-ish pancakes fit for a nice ever medium egg. Sautee a side of greens and you are golden.

    I have been so tired of eating beans. This is a tasty, refreshing change of pace!

    I would be carful with the flour, it has 3g sugar per 1/4 cup. So 12g in the recipe. I would not go overboard with these.  Plus you should be eating 50-100g of carbs a day max to lose max weight even if they are slow. You are already at 72 with this recipe.

    I thought Chickpeas were not allowed on the diet? Anyone?

      The word is that chickpeas are technically OK, but they’re considered “domino foods” (like peanut butter) where it’s easy to eat too much. You can read more here:

      Personally, I haven’t encountered that problem with chickpeas. When converted to hummus, however, I find easy to eat whole tubs full 🙂
