  • The bread flour can be replaced with gluten-free flour.
  • Chickpea flour absorbs a lot more liquid to adjust quantities to create a nice dough, you do not want it to be sticky. Try sorghum flour or oat flour. This will change the texture of the bread as removing the gluten will take away the beautiful chewy texture.
