  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F. (It will take longer for your oven to heat than it will to mix up the batter).

  2. Add the chickpea flour, salt, and nutritional yeast to a mixing bowl and then add the water.

  3. Stir with a whisk for about 30 seconds until all the lumps are gone and you have a thin pancake-like batter.

  4. Add the ingredients listed in the version that you wish to make and stir again for a few seconds.

  5. Grease a small 8x8 baking dish with about 1 tbsp of oil and pour the batter into the dish. (You could also use an iron skillet or a pie dish).

  6. Bake at 425° F for 20 minutes, then take out of the oven and sprinkle with Kosher salt (optional).

  7. Turn down the oven to 350° F and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  8. Let cool for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
