Can you smell it? The delectable scent of baked bread. Fortunately, this Italian Chickpea Flatbread has all the savory favor of an old-world Italian bread without the health concerns.

And this flavorful, easy, and quick cooking gluten-free flatbread is made primarily from two ingredients! Yes, you, too, can make an amazing flatbread with just chickpea flour and coconut milk!

Naturally, it’s full of flavor, thanks to the addition of all the Mediterranean herbs. Hence the name Italian Chickpea Flatbread. But you can omit the herbs for a plain bread, if you want, or add your own spice mix to give it a new twist.

Here’s the recipe:

Italian Chickpea Flatbread


1/3 cup coconut milk

3/4 cup sprouted chickpea flour

1/2 tsp. Dried oregano

1/2 tsp. Dried basil

1/2 tsp. Dried thyme

1/2 tsp. Dried rosemary

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. Black pepper

1/4 tsp. Pink Himalayan salt


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and use a spoon to dollop the chickpea mixture onto the parchment paper, leaving at least ½ inch on all sides between each flatbread dollop. (You could also create larger piece of bread, in any shape you like).

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, until edges turn golden. Let cool completely before using a spatula to remove from the sheet.

Serve with olive tapenade, cashew basil pesto, hummus, or simply olive oil for dipping.
