Savoury Chickpea Zucchini Pancake

the pure life


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.
