Why You’ll Love It

Garbanzo Beans (chickpeas) are one of the creamiest and tastiest of beans. Flour made from this delicious bean lends a sweet, rich flavor to baked goods. Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Bean Flour is freshly milled and 100% stone ground. Garbanzo beans are loaded with protein and dietary fiber and are a good source of iron. Garbanzo bean flour—also known as besan, gram flour, chickpea flour and cici bean flour—is popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking and baking. Use it in dishes like falafel, hummus, socca, farinata, papadums and pakoras. It is also a wonderful ingredient for gluten free baking. Try it in crackers, pizza crusts, and breads. Garbanzo bean flour also works well in cakes or quick breads with strong flavors like chocolate and pumpkin. It can also be used to thicken soups, sauces, or gravies. Use garbanzo bean flour to replace up to 25% of the flour in your baking to increase protein and fiber.

Reviews For Garbanzo Bean Flour

Based on 10 Reviews

Wish I Had Tried This Flour Sooner

I have heard so many people talk about garbanzo bean flour and I searched every grocery store around town to find it. I was unsuccessful, so I was so happy to find it online. The price is not bad at all. I have to say, I absolutely love this stuff. I've used it in vegan cheese, baking, and even made tortillas. It works so well and is lower in cals and more nutritious than all purpose white flour. It's also easier to use than whole wheat flour and it's gluten free. I've practically finished the bag and will be buying more very soon.

Great Product

I bought this to make a flatbread recipe but found that it is also good to thicken stews. There are so many recipes this is good for and healthy. Eating vegan is never boring.

- Ana

Great for Baking

Used as a substitute for wheat flour. Excellent texture and flavor.

- Granda

Good product

This is a good product for certain forms of gluten free baking or general cooking. I do not enjoy it as the main component is something like bread - the taste is too strong. I will continue to buy it for other purposes, however.

- Jessica

Versatile bean flour

Please do buy and use this flour for EVERTHING like we do. We make pure bean flour yeast bread (made just like regular) pizza, perfect pancakes, and even deep fried chicken tenders and onion rings! This is just like flour when baked, only actually beneficial!

I mix it with corn meal to make Fritters, and I enjoy it immensely.

Chickpea Flour

Bob's brand is always good!

- Denise


The falafel is great! This flour is used in so many things and is great for those trying to keep down on those white flour carbs.

- Billy

Good Stuff!

We found a recipe for Garbanzo bean flour waffles that is wonderful! Since then we have been using this flour in lots of other baked goods - crumble on top of fruit crisp is a favorite too!

- Patricia

Healthy flour!

None of my local grocery or health stores carry this product. It works very well to make "healthy" cookies and treats for picky kids. It also has a high iron content which is great for toddlers that need the iron, but won't eat much.
