Chickpeas: Savory vs Sweet

There have been too many breakfast recipes on this blog lately. During my Parade of Pancakes, I have wrongly given the impression that pancakes can only be a breakfast food. Today's recipe will prove that assumption wrong.

These chickpea pancakes are perfect as a side to a Greek flavored dinner. They would go great with tzatziki or gyro meat.

Savory Chickpea Pancakes
1 cup cooked chickpeas
½ cup flour
2eggs
1 tbsp oil
dash of garlic powder, cayenne pepper powder, ground cumin, and onion powder
dash of salt

Blend all the ingredients together into a thick paste. Preheat a pancake pan to medium low heat. Scoop out a few tablespoons of the batter at a time onto the pan. Flip once the bottom becomes slightly browned. Once both sides are golden, remove and eat immediately.

Do you have any leftover chickpeas? Are you craving something sweet, but still packed full of protein? These chocolate chick cookies are the perfect solution. I never thought that chickpeas would work so well incorporated into a cookie, but these things are awesome.

I made this thank you card by stamping the entire front of my card with the thank you stamp. Then I just stuck on the cut out letters, and my simple card was ready to roll.
