Hungry and craving something crunchy, like chips or popcorn? Trying not to eat anything processed but dying for a flavorful and savory yet sweet snack? Try roasted chickpeas! Eaten bare or with a light glaze of coconut oil, honey and cinnamon, it is a healthy protein-filled snack that will keep you fueled for hours.
Roasted Snickerdoodle Chickpeas:
I believe canned chickpeas will work, but I highly recommend soaking dried chickpeas (garbanzo beans) overnight. Then you really know there's nothing weird added in there.
several cups of dried chickpeas
snickerdoodle optional topping:
1 to 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon honey, melted
2 to 3 teaspoons cinnamon
1. Rinse chickpeas in water and soak overnight.
2. Drain beans and lightly dry on paper towels. Spread on a baking sheet on a nonstick surface.
3. Bake at 375 for 45-55 minutes. (Test a few from various places on the pan; when crunchy, they are done).
Enjoy as is:
