    I never normally post anything, but I have to THANK YOU and tell you how incredibly happy I am to find this recipe!! I’m allergic to gluten, yeast, tapioca, dairy, eggs, banana and pumpkin, so needless to say normal baked goods are totally off limits, and even GF or vegan doesn’t usually fit the bill. I’ve tried so many recipes that called for a long list of hard to find ingredients, or tried adapting recipes, and the end result is typically a sad, gummy or dry, terrible disappointment! But this was SO EASY, looked just like the picture, and was delicious!! I also tried it without cumin and less water and made regular pancakes! I’m so happy-these will definitely be a new staple recipe!! Great job! :-)

      Amy!!!! You made me smile so big when I read this. I am so happy you liked these + they turned out well for you :) Thanks for making my day and happy tortilla-ing! :)

    Thanks for the recipe! Just what I was after. I love making wraps but it’s very hard to find good soft gluten free tortilla breads, let a alone egg free!

    I tried these ones tonight and it was a bit tricky to get the right consistency and also fry them to the right softness. I found that adding more water made them thinner like I want them, and the pan can not be too hot! They start to get stiff and it will get harder to spread it out. I’ve got a gas stove so it’s a bit tricky to stay on a low even temperature. But when I got the hang of it they were great! Altough they didn’t look as good as yours :)

    Thanks again!

      Hi Sandra! Thanks so much for your comment. You’re right–these are a bit tricky, so thanks for adding your input! I’ve never tried making these on a gas stove, but that does sound a bit difficult–I’m so glad you stuck with it and got the hang of it!

      Honestly, I’m still torn on whether to call these tortillas or flatbreads (texture-wise, it seems like a toss-up), but for now–happy tortilla eating! :)

    Made these last night; great corn tortilla substitute! I haven’t had tacos in years! Now I just have to perfect the consistency so I can roll/ wrap them up like you did in the pictures.

      YAY! Thanks for letting me know :) I’m curious–how did your consistency turn out? I know these are a little tricky to spread + flip in the pan!

    Hi, I like the taste of falafel. They are made of chickpeas but unfortunately deep fried. So I make this pancakes with the spice of falafel and wrapped around a raw vegan salad.

      That sounds like a great compromise! :)

    not sure why, but mine did not turn out and I tried several times :(

      Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that! What happened when you tried making them?

    I LOVE the flavour of chickpea flour. I usually make them into a fluffy pancake using whisked egg whites (I have the recipe on my blog). But I am totally excited to try your recipe using flaxseeds to make more of a tortilla style pancake.

    I was just wondering what’s the best way to store any leftover batter or cooked wraps of the chickpea wraps, to make it quick and easy to just grab one already prepared and go?

    • erika
      October 4, 2013

      Hi Stacy! If you wanted to store leftover batter, I would suggest refrigerating it in a covered container and giving it a whisk again before you make it. I cooked mine all at once and kept them folded in a tupperware (which I actually don’t recommend because some of them tore along the fold). What I WOULD suggest is, once they’re cool, layering them flat on a plate and cover that with plastic wrap. That should make it easy to grab and go!

      Thanks for the question–I’ll add that to the instructions :)

    These look so amazing and simple to make! Would it be possible to substitute the chickpea flour for whole wheat flour or oat flour?

    • erika
      October 1, 2013

      Since I haven’t tried it, I can’t say for sure…I think whole wheat flour would definitely work, but you might want to cut down on the water since chickpea flour really sucks up moisture more than other flours. If you try oat flour, I would try half oat flour and half wheat flour first before doing all oat just because it tends to be crumbly. Let me know how they turn out!! :)

      • Selena

        I think I will give whole wheat a try this weekend! Will definitely let you know how they come out! Thanks for this awesome recipe :)

    This looks amazing! I have been vegan for about a year now, but I have been struggling to transition to a gluten free diet at my doctor’s suggestion. I am definitely going to try these! How yummy :) Thanks for sharing!!

    I have NO focus for studying either, unless it’s something that really interests me…

    like these tortillas! I love, love, LOVE the convenience and deliciousness of flour tortillas, but you’re totally right – most brands use some really nasty stuff in theirs. Have you ever made pancakes with chickpea flour? The beany taste is a little too strong for sweet pancakes, but savory pancakes…with Indian curries…mhm!

    • erika
      September 24, 2013

      YES! And they were awful! Haha…yes, I’ve discovered sweet pancakes with chickpea flour–not so much. But I’m totally excited to try some savory ones!!

    Okay, I JUST bought garbanzo bean flour for the first time last week, so clearly you posted this just for me, right? :) I’m really not a huge fan of store-bought tortillas, but making them myself seems so involved. But these? These I can totally do!

    • erika
      September 24, 2013

      Ooh exciting! Clearly, of course :) I was really debating calling these tortillas or wraps because the consistency isn’t exactly like a traditional tortilla…but I really love the nutty (or is it beany?) flavor! Also, you should make chickpea fries. THEY ARE ADDICTING. I used this recipe: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/chickpea-fries but baked them instead of frying. SO GOOD! Popped em like…french fries :)

    Damn! These would have been puuuurfect with my kale and black bean breakfast tacos! And masa harina is darn near impossible to find where I live (as in, I’ve never found it), but chickpea flour has suddenly appeared all over the place. I’ll definitely be giving these a try! Thanks for the recipe :)

    • erika
      September 23, 2013

      Oh yum that sounds like a perfect breakfast. Sad about masa harina, but yay for chickpea flour! It’s probably more nutritious, right? Hope you like these! They’re so easy; I think I’m going to end up making a batch a week!

    I love the idea of using besan! It’s something that sits around in my pantry and doesn’t get used often enough, so I will have to try this recipe.

    • erika
      September 23, 2013

      Same here! Also: you should make chickpea fries. OMG DIE. So good!

    How long do they last in the fridge? I’d like to make a batch for the week but I just wanna know how well they store, have you tried freezing them? They look great, I plan on using my Dosa pan to make them!

    • erika
      September 20, 2013

      Hi Gabby–I made these Tuesday and they’re still going strong in the fridge. I’d guess they’d last about a week in the fridge stored in a tupperware of some sort. I think freezing them might be a little tricky since they’re rather delicate, but with a batch this small I’d be surprised if you need to! Hope you like em :)

        So I tried making some and it worked out amazing. I posted some pictures on my blog. Fantastic option for those of us who have celiac and miss giant tortillas. Saturday I made a falafel wrap, this morning I made a breakfast wrap. I had no idea how much I missed wraps…

      • erika
        September 23, 2013

        Ahh Gaby your wraps look so good!! I was thinking about making a hummus + veggie wrap with mine but I was like “too much chickpea?” Obviously not, since your falafel wrap looks AMAZING (I wish I could comment on your blog but I don’t have a tumblr so I don’t think i can :( ) Thanks for letting me know how they turned out!

    Chickpea tortillas = amazing! Beautiful photos! I’ve been trying to find some tortillas at the local groceries – so far, no good! Do you know that tortillas are known as omelets in Spain while tortillas are just tortillas in Latin America?

    • erika
      September 19, 2013

      Thanks Rika! That is so interesting–even flour/corn tortillas are known as omelets? And wait, where do you live? How do they not carry tortillas???

    Wow I didn’t know tortillas are so simple, such simple ingredients. I have to get my hands on chickpea flour and make some of these myself! I love tortillas. Well done!

    Aw! Eric! Not cool dude lol

    I agree, flour tortillas are the best–and it is SO cool that you made these with chickpea. For serial. Amazing.

    Oooh, WELL DONE. These look amazing, Erika! It’s always tricky to make tender tortillas that are whole wheat, so maybe I’ll give these guys a try. I love working with chickpea flour, and luckily I love the taste of it too.

    • erika
      September 19, 2013

      Thanks Irina! Yeah I think these are definite winners both taste and texture wise–chickpeas are the best!

    I’ve been meaning to try chickpea flour since I’ve seen it so much on vegan blogs and it produces that eggy texture. I’ve seen it in pancakes and crepes but I’ve heard it can taste really off, so I’m scared of it, lol! But your tortillas look delish! I’m sure enough spices could camaflouge the weird bean taste! With all those yummy fillings, I bet it’s fab!

    • erika
      September 18, 2013

      Ooh yeah I had a bad experience with it in pancakes once when I was mixing a bunch of flours (it just soaks up alllll the moisture and the flavor can be kind of funky when you combine it with chocolate) but I really like the pure, nutty/beany flavor on its own. You should try it! I got a huge bag for cheap at Fiesta–so good.
