Is Chickpea Flour Healthy?
There are many benefits to incorporating chickpea flour in your diet. Chickpea flour, also known as Besan or garbanzo bean flour, contains fewer calories than regular white flour, and is a vegan-friendly and gluten-free food.
This allows you to consume the same amount of food with fewer calories. Chickpea flour has a lot of fiber; it has about triple the amount in white flour. This fiber has proven to even improve blood fat levels!
Compared to white and whole wheat flour, chickpea flour has more protein. This is vital for muscle growth and staying full for a long time. Chickpea flour is a wonderful addition to vegan and vegetarian diets as it contains 8 out of the 9 important amino acids, making it a very beneficial ingredient.
Does Chickpea Flour make you gain weight?
The short answer is, no. Since chickpea flour keeps you full for a longer period of time from the high fiber, your body needs to do more work to digest it, thus burning more calories. Chickpea flour fills you up fast, so the calorie intake is low to begin with.

This socca recipe is extremely versatile in what it can be paired with. It can be eaten with a light salad on the side. You could make it into a pizza crust and add on your favorite toppings.
