In this video I’ll show you how to make a crunchy and delicious alternative to tortilla chips that I know you’re going to love!
Grain-free Chickpea Chips
Makes 50 chips
standard baking equipment
2 cups / 250g chickpea flour
1 ½ tsp. fine sea salt
1 tsp. freshly cracked black pepper
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. baking powder
4 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes
¼ cup / 60ml coconut oil, melted
4-6 Tbsp. warm water
1. Sift the chickpea flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and baking powder together into a large mixing bowl. Add the nutritional yeast and stir. Drizzle in the melted coconut oil and mix with your hands until the dough is crumbly. Add ¼ cup / 60ml warm water and stir until the dough comes together. If the dough is not sticking together add more water, a teaspoon at a time, until it does. Do not overwork the dough.
2. Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C.
3. Place the ball of dough onto a sheet of baking paper and flatten into a rough disc. Place another sheet of baking paper on top of the dough and using a rolling pin, roll out as thin as possible (if you don’t have large baking sheets, it may help to divide the dough in half and work in two batches). The thinner the dough, the lighter and crispier your chips will be – I cannot emphasize this enough! Remove the top layer of baking paper and score the dough into triangles. Slide the baking paper and dough onto a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 10-13 minutes until the chips are golden around the edges.
4. Once completely cool, transfer the chips to an airtight container where they will keep for up to two weeks.
