Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the chickpea flour, thyme, oregano, and salt
  2. Add the water and avocado oil, whisking until smooth (no clumps)
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, warm up about a teaspoon of avocado or coconut oil. Pour a quarter of the chickpea mixture until a 6-inch pancake forms. Once cooked through (about 3-4 minutes), flip the pancake and cook the other side. Repeat for the rest of the chickpea batter
  4. Once the pancakes are plated, top with the lemon juice and garnish with the red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
