Servings 4 -6 Pancakes



  • 1 1/4 Cups Water
  • 1/2 Cup Cracked Freekeh
  • Drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Chickpea Batter

  • 1/2 Cup Chickpea Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Paprika


  • Start by cooking the freekeh. Add freekeh to the water (cold) on a pot. Bring freekeh + water to a boil, then let simmer for about 10-15 minutes. When freekeh is done, fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.
  • While freekeh is cooling, make the chickpea batter. Combine all ingredients into a bowl a whisk together until well combined.
  • Once chickpea batter is made, add freekeh into the bowl, and stir until well combined with the batter.
  • Bring a sauté pan to medium low heat with a little olive oil. Add about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of the freekeh + chickpea batter and flatten into a pancake shape. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until pancakes are solid.
  • Repeat this step with the remaining batter, keeping in mind that as your pan gets hotter, you may need to cook your pancakes for less time.
  • NOTE - pancakes will be very fragile while they're hot, so handle them with care.
  • Once all your pancakes are done, serve with greens, avocado, and hot sauce (or any sauce you like).
  • Enjoy!
