If you’ve never tried using chickpea flour, this recipe is a great one to start out with. Chickpea flour is made by grinding dry chickpeas into a fine flour. The result is a gluten-free option that has more protein than traditional flour. You can find chickpea flour under a few different names including gram flour, besan or garbanzo bean flour. You can find this flour in the health food section of your grocery store or in the gluten free section. If you have a heavy duty wheat grinder you can also make this flour yourself by grinding dry chickpeas.

Great source of protein
Full of vitamins
Great source of fiber
When you want something different than eggs for breakfast, this is a great option. Full of protein and healthy carbohydrates, this will fuel your morning. Make sure you use extra firm tofu as this has less water and will produce a better result. We also recommend “pressing” your tofu before hand. (see directions below) We hope you enjoy!

This tart, but sweet, cinnamon smoothie is reminiscent of an apple pie. (A much healthier apple pie) This smoothie is quick and easy to make and will fill you up thanks to the fiber and protein. This smoothie includes maple extract which should not be confused with maple syrup. It also includes hazelnut extract. You can find maple and hazelnut extract in the seasonings and spices section of your grocery store over by the vanilla extract. If you can’t find maple extract you can omit (although we love the taste with it) and the hazelnut extract can be substituted for almond extract. This recipe can be used as breakfast while on the diabetes or weight loss program. This is not a snack smoothie. If you have this smoothie for breakfast you can still have a snack smoothie later in the day. Enjoy! Continue reading
