Leslie...my mouth is watering girl! They look scrumptious and I would definitely try this recipe!  :)

 

But, where can I buy chickpea flour?  Any grocery store?  or are they sold at organic markets? Can I used an alternative healthy flour instead? (i.e. almond flour, oat flour, spelt?)

I use to get mine at Ralph's in LA.  Haven't looked in Tulsa but I am sure Sprouts, Whole Foods, Atkins, or even a nice upper scale grocery would have it.

it is a flour used in a lot of dishes in the Middle East.

 

Apr 26, 2015 - Chickpea flour is nothing more than dried chickpeas, ground to a flour-like consistency. Other names for chickpea flour include gram flour, cici flour and garbanzo bean flour. Besan is chickpea flour ...---I just googled this.

 

also almond flour can be used or honestly I would think any good dusting flour would be good.

 

dont forget the dipping sauce that goes with because it really sets it off!

 

i use this squash and make a sweet dish out of it too.  Just cut in half, remove pulp and put butter and brown sugar in and bake till tender,  soooo good.  Like a desert!  

 

Let me know now when you make it!

Also Sandra you might want to try Trader Joes...Krogers and Shop Rite. They have Bobs Red Mill brand, a Gluten free Garbanzo and Flava Flour. And Walmart sometimes carry Kohinoor Besan Durbar Gram flour. Chickpea flour is an excellent gluten free substitute for Celiac sufferers. Hope this helps.  :D
