Roasted Chickpea Flour

Some products are not easy to find in local grocery’s, that’s why is best to make it yourself. This was my friend’s idea but I tried it and can’t live without it. I use chickpea flour in many products. Chickpea flour is gluten free, high in fiber and has higher percentages of protein than usual flours. It also helps improve heart health and can help with weight loss due to high content of fiber, It’s simple to make. All you need is good blender, sieve and dried chickpeas.
