Green chickpea pancakes, easy, gluten-free, vegan and healthy recipe perfect for lunch or dinner.
New year, new me. Lately (the last few months) I've been eating less healthily. A lot of vegan junk food and copious amounts of vegan mayonnaise.
To change that, and with a new year just around the corner, I'm using new year's resolutions as a reason and a motivation.
So, my new year's resolution this year is to live and eat healthier. More plant-based diet and less oh this is vegan it's okay to eat-diet. Not to lose weight even tho I wouldn't complain if I lost a few kilos. To move more, and be outside more.
However, to achieve that, I'm not waiting for January the first to make all the changes. I'm taking small steps towards my goals, and I'm not striving for perfection. Hopefully, this time I'll achieve them.
Have you made any resolutions yet?
I love cooking with chickpea flour. The reason why I love it so much is because it's gluten-free and perfect to use instead of eggs in many recipes. Like in this green chickpea pancakes, or my omelet muffins.
Not only that, but also they are essentially loaded with nutrients and proteins.
