Savoury Chickpea Zucchini Pancake

Savoury Chickpea Zucchini Pancake

Pancakes just got a makeover.

This savoury chickpea zucchini pancake is the next best thing since sliced bread, for real. I love making this pancake for lunch, stuffed with my favourite toppings like avocado and fresh greens. Chickpea flour is packed with plant-based protein and fibre and will keep you satiated and energized for the day. I love the grated zucchini because it gives it a savoury flavour and hearty texture. Add your favourite spices and you’ve got yourself a delicious lunch!

This is the chickpea flour I used – it’s made with garbanzo (chickpea) beans and fava beans to give it a hearty flavour. It’s packed with goodness, giving this dish at least a whopping 14g of protein per serving and 20% of your daily recommended iron intake.

A hearty, savoury and protein-packed pancake.


  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup garbanzo bean (chickpea) flour
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose herb seasoning
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. quality all-purpose seasoning salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil
  • Toppings: avocado, leafy greens, cherry tomatoes, red pepper slices, sauerkraut, organic ketchup, etc.
  • Step 1 In a mixing bowl, add the grated zucchini, parsley and water.
  • Step 2 In a separate bowl, mix the chickpea flour, baking powder, nutritional yeast and spices.
  • Step 3 Mix the two together until no clumps are left.
  • Step 4 In a pan on low-medium heat, add the avocado oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter into the pan and using a spoon, spread the batter so it spreads to the edges of the pan, like a crepe.
  • Step 5 Cook for 2 minutes, or until golden, and then flip to the other side for another 2 minutes. Do the same for the second pancake.
  • Step 6 Serve warm and fill with your favourite toppings!
