Bob's Red Mill Garbanzo Flour is freshly milled and 100% stone ground. Garbanzo Beans (chick peas) are one of the creamiest and tastiest of beans. They are loaded with protein and dietary fiber and are a good source of iron. Flour made from this delicious bean lends a sweet, rich flavour to baked goods. It is also known as besan, gram flour, chickpea flour and cici bean flour. It is popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking and baking. Use it in dishes like falafel, hummus, socca, farinata, papadums and pakoras. It is also a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking. Try it in crackers, pizza crusts and breads. Garbanzo bean flour also works well in cakes or quick breads with strong flavours like chocolate and pumpkin. It can also be used to thicken soups, sauces or gravies. Use garbanzo bean flour to replace up to 25% of the flour in your baking to increase protein and fiber.
