I haven't tried this yet, but thought it looked interesting.  I was just going through one of my cookbooks today and found this.

GARBANZO BEAN PANCAKES

1/2 c. garbanzo beans
2 T. olive oil
3/4 c. water
1 egg
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt


Mix in blender.  Heat in pan that has been sprayed with oil until bubbles form on top.  Flip over and fry until lightly browned.

Hi Jerrie

I've tried something similar to this for pizza crust, baked on a flat sheet, and it actually works pretty well -- makes you feel like you're eating the "real" thing. Haven't tried it as pancakes yet. There was also a recipe some time back for banzo biscuits, which is on my list to try, and gingerbread brownies. Have something like this when you really have a craving -- it's ok for once in a while.

If I remember correctly, most of us found that when we add the baking powder/baking soda, eggs, and bake it or cook it like a bread product, it stalls our progress if we eat it too often. Something about that combination makes our body recognize it more like a processed food. It is GREAT, though, for a special treat or occasional item, because there is nothing in it that should trigger cravings, and you still get to enjoy something special if you really miss it.

Sometimes you just gotta have something special from your memory, and this is a good way to do it without risking cravings.

Enjoy!
Terri

Terri - thanks for the heads up on the possibility of baking soda/baking powder/egg combo potentially stalling weight loss.  I thought because it had no flour, and did have beans that it should be okay.  I may try it some time for a rare pizza crust substitute.  Thanks again.  Jerrie

I tried this for pizza crust , I doubled the recipe and it would not cook in the center but burned on the bottom. Tasted good but I think if you double the amount you have to play around with the temp? Worth trying again. :thumbsup:

Cindy - I wonder if it would work on a Pampered Chef baking stone.  It seems that nothing ever burns on my baking stones for some reason.

Jerri,
Since I have all the ingredients in the house, including the pizza stone. I am going to try this. I just won't add the cheese for now. Just not in the mood for it.
But I was curious and wondering if you ever had problems with the mixture of BP, eggs and BS causing a stall??
I am going to use this as a wrap for a change from lettuce, and see what happens.

Zesti - I forgot all about that Garbanzo Bean Pancake that I posted a while back, and the garbanzo pizza crust recipe that Terri posted that she said was similar. I never did get around to trying either one of those recipes.
