Savory Freekeh Pancakes

These hearty, savory freekeh pancakes are made with chickpea flour and cracked freekeh, creating a delicious and protein-packed vegan breakfast!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
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


  1. 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.
  2. While freekeh is cooling, make the chickpea batter. Combine all ingredients into a bowl a whisk together until well combined.
  3. Once chickpea batter is made, add freekeh into the bowl, and stir until well combined with the batter.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. NOTE - pancakes will be very fragile while they're hot, so handle them with care.
  7. Once all your pancakes are done, serve with greens, avocado, and hot sauce (or any sauce you like).
  8. Enjoy!
