Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

As an additional boost of protein, chickpea flour aka gram flour, cici flour or garbanzo bean flour can be a great sub for regular wheat or white flour and if you're needing to avoid gluten. Each cup contains 356 calories, 21 g protein, 6 g total fat and 53 g of total carbohydrates and has fewer calories and carbs than whole wheat or all purpose white flour. In addition, it's a great source of folate, with seven times more folate than regular whole wheat flour and is a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium. As long as its unsweetened, in comparison to other types of milk, almond milk is lower in calories. Even though raw almonds are a good source of protein, almond milk is not, but is a good source of vitamin A and D and is naturally lactose free. It should be noted that it should be thought of as a good source of calcium, which is important for those with osteoporosis and optimum bone growth.
