Tips for making Chickpea Flour Tortillas:

  • Make sure you let the batter sit for at least ten minutes for best results.

  • You can omit or change the spices used in the batter.

  • For a sweet crepe-like tortilla add 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, omit savory spices and instead add a few pinches of ground cinnamon before cooking. This tastes great with coconut cream and berries.

  • You can cook for just a few minutes each side for a flexible wrap or cook until crisp on each side for a tostada-like tortilla.

  • You can omit the oil if oil-free.

  • You can cut into any shape that you please or leave the tortillas whole before baking for a tostada-like tortilla ready to be topped with favorite toppings.

  • Store tortilla chips in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    I don’t normally comment but these were really good. I have tried lots of versions of these gf or chickpea tortillas and this is by far the best one. I swapped paprika for cayenne pepper, ground cumin for the seeds and omitted salt. I too like that there are no starches. Will be adding this to my recipe book!

    This is brilliance! Chickpea taco shells!! And chips too. I like that the recipe only uses chickpea flour and no starches like most chickpea tortilla recipes.
