  • 1 3/4 cups chickpea flour

  • vegan butter or vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Add chickpea flour, water, and all spices to a large mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined and set aside for 15 minutes to allow chickpea flour to become more hydrated.

Place the muffin tray into the center rack of the oven and bake for about 25 minutes, until the surface of the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick or knife inserted into the middle of the muffin comes out clean.
