  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon za’atar

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, water, olive oil, sea salt, and ½ teaspoon za’atar.
  2. Allow batter to rest for 30 minutes.
  3. While the batter is resting, arrange the oven rack about 6” below the broiler.

  5. Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven and turn on the broiler.
  6. Add avocado oil to hot pan and carefully swirl to coat.
  7. Pour the batter in the center of the pan and tilt it to evenly distribute the batter.

  10. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and the remaining za’atar.
