Googie’s Kitchen presents Chickpea Yorkies

Gifts from Grandpa is my NEW recipe book – out NOW and available to buy on Amazon for only £19.99. Plus £1 from the sale of each book will go to Crisis the homeless charity.

As I have mentioned before on my blog my dear old dad was the king of roast dinners. Dad knew a lot about cooking a delicious roast. What he didn’t know he would find out or just make up as he went along. So I had to show you how to make these yummy alternatives to Yorkshire puddings. These are based on my Dad’s original recipe but I have added my gluten free twist. Have you guessed what it is yet? Below are the recipe and video for you.

Chickpea Yorkies – Gifts from Grandpa

Chickpea Yorkshire puddings are a great alternative for those of us with a gluten intolerance. We love them in this house. I made them for my parents a few weekends ago and even my Dad ate them. He said he enjoyed it which is a big deal for my Dad as he tends to enjoy his traditional foods. To be honest, I haven’t tried these with jam or honey yet but I bet they taste good like this too. However you decide to eat them, as always, enjoy.
