Roasted Snickerdoodle Chickpeas: The Perfect Snack

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:

or for a yummy topping, or dessert:

 Melt coconut oil, add honey and cinnamon and roll chickpeas in the mixture, mixing well.
Stick back in the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
