Chickpea Crepes are thin savory chickpea pancakes made with healthy chickpea flour.

Bonus, these are easy, healthy, gluten-free vegan crepes made with only 3 ingredients in a blender.

How To Make Chickpea Flour

In order to make these delicious chickpea flour crepes, you need chickpea flour also known as garbanzo bean flour.

While you can buy chickpea flour from the store you can also make your own.

Obviously, to make chickpea flour you need to grind raw dried garbanzo bean into flour.

This means that you need a powerful blender or food processor to pulse your garbanzo beans into fine flour.

First, cover the blade of your food processor with garbanzo beans.

Next, blend on high speed to grind the beans into flour.

This requires 2 or 3 attempts. Blend for 1 minute, stop the food processor, scrape the bowl and repeat until you obtain a fine flour.

Finally, sift the flour to remove any big parts. Store chickpea flour in an airtight container, glass or plastic, in the pantry for up to 3 months.

Making Thin Chickpea Crepes

The most difficult part of making crepes of any kind is making thin crepes.

Following are the 3 tips to follow to make the most beautiful crepes anytime.

  1. Batter. Your batter must be liquid, thinner than a pancake batter but not as liquid as water. It is very important to use a blender to make your batter to achieve this result and avoid any lumps. Also, if your batter is too liquid don’t be afraid to adjust, adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of chickpea flour at a time to get the right consistency.
  2. Non-stick Tefal pan. A non-stick crepe pan or non-stick pancake griddle is required to make thin crepes that won’t stick.
  3. Slightly grease the pan. Don’t add lots of oil to your pan, always use a spray or piece of absorbent paper to spread a thin layer of oil on the pan. Indeed, too much oil will fry your crepes.

Basically, anything goes well into those savor chickpea crepes.

My recommendation is to bring the crepe back to the pan with your filling, especially if you add vegan cheese.

This will melt your cheese and make the whole filling hot. Grilled vegetables like zucchini, eggplant, and red peppers are delicious in those vegan crepes.

Storage Instructions

This recipe makes 5 chickpea crepes. I stored mine on a plate in the fridge – make sure you wrap the plate with a piece of plastic film to prevent the crepes from drying out.

The next day, I fill my crepes and rewarm them in a sandwich press. It adds a little crispiness all around the crepe, which is absolutely delicious.

And if you are not keen to eat with your fingers, it is also lovely crepes to eat on your plate with some green salad on the side.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chickpea Crepes

Vegan Chickpea flour Crepes, a 3-ingredient recipe that makes gluten-free wraps with garbanzo bean flour only 5 grams of net carbs per small crepe.
Prep: 10 minutes

Yield: 5 crepes
Serving Size: 1 crepe

  • 1 ¼ cup Chickpea Flour also called Garbanzo Bean Flour
  • 1 ⅓ cup Water
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt

Optional spices

  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin optional
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Oregano optional

To grease the crepe pan

  • ½ teaspoon Coconut Oil or vegetable oil of your choice

  • In a blender, add the chickpea flour, water, salt, and spices.
  • Blend on high for 30 seconds – 1 minute or until no more lumps appear. It will form a very liquid yellowish batter.
  • Transfer into a bowl. Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. 
  • Warm a 10-inch crepe pan, under medium/high heat, and use absorbent paper to rub the coconut oil on the pan and grease the pan.
  • Scoop 1/3 cup of the crepe batter into the frying pan and tilt the pan in a circular motion to ensure that the batter coats the surface evenly. The batter is very liquid, and that is what you want. The thickness of the crepes will depend on how much batter you use for each. Usually, 1/3 cup is what you need to make a 10-inch (26 cm) crepe, but you may want to add a little more to make a thick crepe. I love mine super thin as it gets crispier. 
  • Cook the crepe until the sides start to crisp up and lift off easily from the frying pan. It should take about 2 minutes each, over medium heat.
  • Loosen with a spatula and flip over to cook the other side. Both sides should be lightly brown, and the crepes should be crispy on the sides and softer in the middle.
  • Repeat for the next crepe until no more batter is left. I made 5 crepes with this recipe.
  • To serve, fill each crepe with the savory filling of your choice. I spread hummus, mashed avocado, grilled zucchini, grilled eggplant, fresh cherry tomatoes, raw chickpeas, and a drizzle of Dijon mustard. 


Storage: I store my crepes in the fridge for up to 4 days. Simply place the crepes on a plate, cover them with a piece of plastic wrap/film to prevent them from drying out. Rewarm on a crepe pan or fill with your favorite filling, roll, and warm up in a sandwich press.
Garbanzo flour is also known as chickpea flour. It is gluten-free flour.

    You definitely nailed the proportions with these! I’m now officially obsessed with these crepes. My last batch included some caraway seeds and dried dill, filled with roasted eggplant, mushrooms, goat cheese arugula and a little balsamic glaze. So good!

  2. 5 stars
    I make these for the gluten intolerant or vegans using the basic recipe every year for a large Shrove Tuesday pancake party. They are a great success! I don’t own a nonstick pan and they work well as full size crepes or minis. I just make them plain and do a mass of different fillings and toppings. I am planning to use minis for a picnic I am doing for around 30 walkers and just know they will be eaten by everyone. They are just one big success here in Ibiza (look it up if you don’t know where that is!) and so easy! THANK YOU for such a simple but wonderful recipe. God bless you for posting it.

  3. it sounds delish and so easy. Question please. Do you think that it is going to work with a crepe maker like for example the Salton Crepe And Tortilla Maker?
    Thank you

  4. I don’t have a cast iron skillet. What can i do instead? Start it in a non stick and transfer in a baking tray later? Also if i wanted to add mushrooms/peppersdo i cook them separately?

  5. Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to make these without a blender and just in a bowl instead? Thank you

  6. I am gluten free and would love to try these, but I’m wondering if they would work in a well-seasoned cast iron pan. Has anyone tried them in cast iron?

  7. Hi! First time on your site. Found this crepe recipe intriguing. Was wondering if I could make the batter the previous night for the next morning breakfast…?

  8. 5 stars
    SO AMAZING!! I didn’t think you could get this good of a crepe with it being gluten free!! These go perfectly with a mushroom filling, and some goat cheese! I use a greenpan. Thank you soooo much for this recipe! I gotta try more recipes from your site!

  9. 5 stars
    I am so happy I found your recipes. I make these all the time and they absolutely delicious and so simple to make . Thank you. Do you have a similar recipe for a sweet crepe please? Thank you

    • Actually, you could definitely try deep frying them to make chips. In India, where I’m from, we use garbanzo bean flour for all kinds of deep fried snacks. Google recipes using ‘besan’ flour which is what we call it, and you should find lots of ways to deep fry them. Hope this helps!

    Greetings from Norway! 🙂 I just finished eating mine! Delicious! I didn’t have enough chick pea flour, so I had to add about 4 tablespoons of white flour. I ate mine with lentil stew (green lentils, carrots, celery, onion and thyme) and raspberry jam and a little bit of sugar, just to see if they could be eaten as regular pancakes. Both of these toppings tasted good. Thank you for the great recipe!

  11. Love your recipes, but some of them are not in metric, so it’s a pain to convert every single ingredient, it would be awesome to have the automatic conversion kn the ingredients list!

    • We are working on converting every single recipe in metric, unit it takes time, sorry. Enjoy the blog! XOXO Carine

      • I’m okay with doing conversions. I figure you put in all the time developing a recipe, so that tiny effort on my part isn’t anything to complain about. What would be really helpful is knowing what weights YOU get for standard items. People measure quite differently one from another, so a chart that shows what you personally get from a cup of various basics, besan, atta, etc would be great

  12. 5 stars
    Just made these crepes! So yummy. I used lemon and sugar as a topping and the chickpea flour added a nuttiness to it, so delish!

  13. 5 stars
    This was a delicious recipe! We made them, but didn’t have a non stick pan, and had a bit of problem with the crepes sticking…. so made little pancakes instead with a bit more oil which worked really well. We topped them with some veggies – finely sliced cabbage, finely sliced kalamata olives, and a little beet kraut for a savory dish. We loved them, and will make them again, and try the crepe again too. These took me to some exotic place… somewhere I couldn’t quite place… something in my memory. So yummy!

    • I agree, you really need a non stick crepe pan as recommended on the recipe post to make sure those won’t stick. I love your adaptation of the recipe, great tasty ideas here. Enjoy the blog, XOXO Carine.

  14. 5 stars
    this recipe is a winner! The ratio of the chickpea flour and water was just perfect! Thank you so much

    • No I am sorry it must be dry chickpea flour! It won’t work with canned chickpea. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    • The batter is pretty blend itself. Simply play with spices to make it sweet or savory. Sweet idea could be ground cinnamon, few tablespoons of sweetener (erythritol or monk fruit sugar if sugar free or coconut sugar). Savory idea are ground cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and dried herbs. Enjoy the recipe! XOXO Carine.

    I made these crepes last night for dinner. I filled them with the mushroom and spinach filling. My family enjoyed them so much some had seconds. My 25year old daughter can’t tolerate gluten. She especially enjoyed them. I also made the buckwheat crepes. They are a nice alternative as well. The color was darker than yours? Do you think it is due to the brand? They were delicious none the less. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. Also, the video was helpful in pouring them onto the pan and getting a nice even, crisp crepe.

    • Thanks for this beautiful comment! I am buying chickpea flour that is really light/golden color so I guess that is why it is coming out so light in color. It must depends on brand. In New Zealand I am buying mine from bulk food store so no brand are mentioned. I love mushrom and spinach filling too ! So delish 🙂 Thanks again for trying my recipes and taking a minute to add your lovely feedback. XOXO Carine.

        Oh I meant the buckwheat crepes came out darker than yours. Like Isaid before they were delicious. It probably is due to where it is grown. Since my last comment I have been making the crepes for breakfast for my family, and we are enjoying them immensely! It has opened up a whole new world of eating that is healthy and delicious. Thanks again!

        • Probably!Buckwheat flour is really dark in France where I am coming form but super light in New Zealand – where I live now. But both taste the same and it is delicious. I am happy you enjoyed the crepes with you family. That is the kind of comment I love! You made my day! Thanks for sharing. XOXO Carine.
