How To Make the Garbanzo Bean Flour Pancake

First, get to the store and buy yourself some garbanzo bean flour. It’s about $2-3 for a 16oz bag and all it contains are ground up dried garbanzo beans. 

In a medium mixing bowl, blend together the flour with water, olive oil, salt and spices. Allow the mixture to rest for about 15-minutes. 

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425-degrees Fahrenheit. 

Oil up a medium-sized cast iron skillet and place it over high heat. Pour the garbanzo bean flour mixture into the hot pan so that you can cook the bottom of the pancake for a few minutes.

Then, throw that hot pan into the hot oven. Allow the pancake to cook for about 20-minutes, and then remove from the oven.

Use the pancake to dip into garlic sauce or top it with your favorite meats and cheeses.
