Gluten Free Chickpea Muffins (Chickpea Flour Savoury Muffins)
Finally, the summer is almost over and it is time to think about some healthy back to school snack recipes – not just for the kids, but also for the whole family as well.
And I present to you my favorite gluten free chickpea muffins with yogurt! These yummy wheat free treats very easy to make, super tasty, and guess what – I have added a secret ingredient that makes them extremely healthy and it is the perfect way to sneak greens into your kid’s food! It’s genius! 😀 But more about this – a bit later!
Now let’s see what we need to make these gluten free chickpea muffins.
First off, as the name implies, the base for these toddler friendly treats is chickpeas. But instead of adding the whole legumes which can be time consuming and annoying, we will be using chickpea flour, which is much easier to work with!
Secondly, you will need some rice powder which is also very popular celiac friendly flour.
Also, for these delicious chickpea flour savoury muffins, I have added one of my most favorite ingredients – yogurt. And of course, since I am from the land of the famous Lactobacillus Bulgaricus yogurt culture, I have used traditional Bulgarian yogurt which is jam-packed with healthy nutrients! You can read all about the magical Bulgarian yogurt benefits in the article right below:
But, if you do not have access to this heavenly delicious and healthy dairy product, you can easily make it at home even without a yogurt maker! Here’s the detailed tutorial:
Now back to our beloved back to school gluten free chickpea muffins!
Besides the usual olive oil (I do not use refined vegetable oils anymore because of the risks of causing chronic inflammation in the body), I promised I would share with you the secret ingredient I put in these gorgeous chickpea muffin recipe that would make your family have crazy their leafy greens cravings!
My magical chlorophyll source that supplies our bodies with Iron, and a plethora of other essential nutrients – Stinging Nettle powder! This amazing herb is so good for our overall health and wellbeing, but let’s face it – it is definitely not among the most craveable foods on Earth, especially among children (is creaveable a word? 😀 )!
The benefits of stinging nettle powder are simply amazing! This powerful herb has acute antipyretic, diuretic, and anti-anemic effects (this is one of the best non heme Iron sources). Stinging nettle is often recommended by nutritionists and naturopaths as an additional treatment for anemia, vitamin deficiency, digestive disorders with diarrhea, slow metabolism, headaches, nosebleeds, heavy menstruation and hemorrhoids. This is definitely a wonderful natural nutritional supplement to have in every household!
The recommended daily dose for an adult is 2 tablespoons and if you intend to use this as a regular food supplement, consult with your physician first!
I love how easy it is to include some stinging nettle powder to our meals as a wonderful way to sneak greens into the food – it can be added to smoothies, soups, as a spice to any kinds of meals, and of course – it can be used as a gluten free baking flour substitute! And the best part is that it is not only vegan, but a low carb cooking ingredient as well with merely 0.25 grams of net carbs per 100 grams nettle leaf powder!
Speaking of the HFLC plan, I have an upcoming book on healthy weight-loss using the low carb diet plan, specially designed for women. If you wish to be among the first to learn more is, feel free to subscribe to my newsletter and become an insider! You will get access to many cool freebies and special surprises!
Just remember that this is an addition to the main ingredients – not the star of the food. Stinging nettle flour is a superfood and it is definitely in the nutrient dense food list, so take into consideration the recommended daily dosages!
