Chick Pea (Garbanzo Bean) Muffins

These are great if you're trying to go low on grains. Note that the recipe calls for full fat yogurt. If you use low fat yogurt, I think you would have to add more oil to make up for it. But not having tried that, I don’t know how much. These muffins are not very sweet, so they go nicely with soups. (But you can always add jam or honey to accommodate a sweet tooth. I do.) I have used other syrups in the recipe (date, grape, sorghum, honey) when I didn’t have any maple syrup, and they all worked fine.

1 cup chick pea (garbanzo bean) flour
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
½ teaspoon baking soda
Scant ¼ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup full fat yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Makes 6 muffins. Grease the muffin pan well and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
