chicky pea cornies for Misty and Buddy EE (oh and Missy B)
- 4T + 2t chickpea flour
- 2t organic brown or white sugar (This is optional, or you can sub in honey, agave, maple… Chickpea flour has a slight bitterness, but I made some with no sweetener and loved them).
- Good pinch of sea salt
- 1/2t cinnamon (optional)
- 2t oil (grapeseed, melted coconut, olive, butter, whatever)
- 6T water
Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Combine all ingredients and mix really well. Chickpea flour tends to form clumps so a small whisk is handy. I can’t find mine. Misty?
Pour mixture onto a baking tray lined with baking paper
It’s a pretty runny mix, so just let it flow around until it relatively evenly covers the space at around 1-2mm thick. The handy thing is, you don’t need to be too particular about it, as your going to break the whole lot up anyhow.
Bake for 15 minutes at 180 degrees C.
At this point, take the tray out of the oven, and peel the mix from the baking paper. It won’t come off all in one piece, and it will stick. Again, don’t stress. You’re just making the job easier at the end, trust.
Turn the oven down to 120 degrees C. Put all the pieces (and crumbs) back onto the baking tray (make sure you have flipped the pieces so the underside can crisp up). Bake for another 15 minutes. Turn off the oven, leaving the tray inside until it has cooled down (to dry out the pieces further).
Break into pieces. Makes just under 1Cup of crunchy flakes.
Enjoy just as you would any other cereal… a sprinkling of dried fruit or nuts perhaps? I did a few batches- some with cinnamon, some with mixed spice (pumpkin pie spice) some plain, just to get a pretty contrast. Also because Misty had a long nap and I got bored and didn’t want to clean the house.
Misty enjoyed some flakes as a mid morning snack with yoghurt.
I enjoyed mine with rice milk and sunshine. Seriously, these are good. I wouldn’t subject Buddy EE to anything less than. I’m really digging them, just like cornflakes, but with a decent nutritional profile. Hurrah.
