Chickpea Flour Cracker Snack
For the Cracker Snack
- 2,25 dl 1 cup chickpea flour
- 1,25 dl water 1/2 cup + 2 TSP
- 1,5 TSP flaxseed
- 1,5 TSP chiaseed
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 TSP olive oil + 0.5 TSP for the baking sheet
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 TSP sesame seeds
- 1 pinch Himalaya or Muldon salt for sprinkling
Chickpea Cracker Snack Step by Step
- Heat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F), and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Oil the sheet to prevent any chance of sticking.
- In a small bowl mix your flax and chia seeds with 2 TBS of water. Set aside to rest while you get ready for with the rest of this easy, short process.
- As the seed mix absorbs the water, measure out chickpea flour, salt, garlic powder, cumin.
- Mix your dry ingredients with 1 TSP of olive oil, 125 ml (1,25 dl) of water and the thickened flax/chia seeds.
- The batter can feel too thick in which case you may want to add a bit of water, or if its too loose sprinkle a bit more flour in. It should feel sticky yet spreadable.
- Press the batter onto your oiled grease proof paper and stick another sheet of paper on top to help flatten it into an even, thin (as thin as possible). You can use your hands to flatten or a rolling pin.
- Lift off the top sheet and sprinkle sesame seeds and a pinch of corse salt ( I used Himalaya). Use the salt sparingly though…..
- Bake in the preheated oven for approx 15 minutes, after which you will check and see if the crackers are golden. You may have to leave them in for a bit longer, but keep an eagle eye on them!
- Take our the tray and let the crackers rest for a good 20 minutes, after which they are easy to break into pieces. If some in the middle aren’t snapping off easily - pop the tray back into the turned off oven so they dry out.
Chickpea Cracker Snack: What’s The Verdict?
Is it a cracker or a snack? While we can debate this for a while, the main thing is that you got inspired. Food that brings enjoyment, happiness and a bit of extra health to my table makes me smile.
Chickpea flour is versatile in cooking. With its high protein content, dietary fiber and literally zero cholesterol it has a given place in my kitchen. I use it for many dishes. For example, to coat chicken and fish instead of breadcrumbs which keep gluten allergies and intolerances at bay. Of course, it works fabulously in baking too.

Inspiration to Feel, Be and Do Good
I tried 2 tweaks:
1. I made a sweet vanilla flavored version.
2. Most interesting: I replaced water with egg whites. The result was a more substantial cracker enjoyed by one and all vs. the original recipe, which was not well received except by me.
What a great tweak to take the recipe further! Glad your eggwhite version of the chickpea flour cracker snack was appreciated. I sometimes add cinnamon or sprinkle finely chopped pistachios, or other nuts and seeds. Recipes should inspire, don’t you think?! Welcome back to thegoodista.com anytime!
