Chickpea muffins are a wonderful thing, especially for a vegan brunch in the sun. I’m thinking, for example, of the next Easter, which is practically just around the corner. Today is one of the first days when the sun shines and temperatures are almost warm. I am already thinking about the next vegan Easter and look forward to a long table with many specialties that you can also eat as finger food. These savory muffins are definitely one of them, too. Well, do you feel like it? Then let’s get started together.
Chickpea muffins vegan and gluten free
This chickpea muffins are fluffy, flavorful and hearty. But this is still not the best argument, because the production is quick and easy. Let’s get to the ingredients, chickpea flour, vegetable milk, nutritional yeast flakes, oregano, garlic granules, baking powder, salt, pepper and oil. Then we stir in the vegetables. Spinach, mushrooms, red peppers, onions. Stir and pour into muffin tins. Then put in the oven and bake.
That’s really all there is to it. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is and the result is simply sensational. My favorite way to eat the muffins is fresh out of the oven along with a fine lettuce salad, which brings a nice freshness.
By the way, you have free choice in the selection of vegetables you put into the muffins and you can let your imagination run wild. For mushrooms, shiitake, oyster mushrooms, chanterelles, or whatever else you can currently get are just as good. Otherwise, yellow or green peppers, carrots, zucchini, green onion and many other vegetables also work.
TIP: Blanch fresh spinach for a few minutes before using so that it collapses. Otherwise, the volume is too large and difficult to fill into the muffin tins. Frozen spinach is best thawed beforehand, especially if frozen in cubes.
How healthy is chickpea flour?
Chickpea flour is my new favorite in the kitchen because it’s gluten-free and full of protein. In total, it contains about 20 percent vegetable protein, which makes it very attractive for people who particularly value a high protein content in their diet. In addition, there is a high fiber content, which further emphasizes the health benefits. Here are some more good arguments in favor of using chickpea flour.
- Particularly good binding properties, perfect egg substitute (1 egg = 1 heaped tablespoon chickpea flour + 2 tablespoons of warm water).
- Rich in vitamins and minerals (vitamins B1, B6, C, E, iron, magnesium and zinc)
- Well satiating and particularly rich in magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium
- Useful addition to a low-carb diet
