Chickpea lovers rejoice! Sprouted chickpea crackers are quick and easy to make, and will satisfy all your snacking needs! They have the distinct earthy, nutty flavour of sprouted chickpea flour, paired with sesame and a hint of garlic. They’re a wonderful crispy texture, just as a cracker should be. Sprouted chickpea flour is high in protein, fibre and iron, so these crackers also pack a great nutritional punch. Sprouting chickpeas improves their taste and texture, and aids in digestibility and bioavailability. Eat these crackers on their own, dip ’em, top them with cheese, add them to your favourite charcuterie board or if you really can’t get enough sprouted chickpeas, pair them with our recipe for sprouted chickpea hummus!
This recipe is very versatile. You can substitute any kind of oil and try with different combinations of spices (we find the garlic powder really compliments the chickpea flour). If you don’t have any, you can leave the sesame seeds out, although they add a really lovely flavour and texture to this recipe. These would also be delicious with black sesame seeds or even flax seeds. The recipe is already naturally gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan.
