Spicy Veggie Chickpea Flour Pancakes

If I had to choose food that I had eat everyday these pancakes would be it. You can change vegetables (zucchini, cauliflower, green onions, green beans or asparagus РI tried them all) and you have a different pancake. I love to eat them with hummus, saut̩ed or grilled vegetables, salsa or pico and spicy coleslaw goes well with it too. Sometimes I just eat it plain without fork or plate. I often time put half of the batter into the fridge for next day. Please let me know what you think of them.
