A crunchy, deeply satisfying, kid-approved healthy snack that is seriously addicting! You might want to double (or triple!) the recipe. :)
Ingredients
  • 15oz. can of organic chickpeas (rinsed well) or just under 2 cups fresh cooked chickpeas
  • Our Favorite Seasonings:
  • Honey Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp. Raw Honey
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Ginger, Nutmeg and Sea Salt (all optional additions to change things up, but we like the simplicity of the honey and cinnamon)
  • Spice Blend
  • 1 T. EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
  • ½ tsp. Paprika
  • ½ tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp. Turmeric
  • ½ tsp. Cumin
  • ¼ tsp. Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • ¼ tsp. Sea Salt
  • Garlic-Lime-Flax
  • 1 T. EVOO
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. Ground Flax
  • 1-2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp. Sea Salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cover a tray with parchment paper, or one of these fabulous eco-friendly silicone baking mats.
  3. Whether you are cooking your own or using organic canned chickpeas (drained and rinsed), you will need to dry them. You can roll them between sheets of paper towel, or use a hand towel, which we prefer. The drier you get them, the crunchier your chickpeas!
  4. Spread them in a single layer on your tray, and remove and skins that have come loose, as they easily burn.
  5. Pop the tray in the oven for 40 minutes, opening after 20 minutes to shake the tray to allow for even cooking.
  6. While they chickpeas cook, prepare your seasoning of choice. See ingredient list above for our favorites.
  7. minutes before they're finished, remove the tray from the oven, slide the chickpeas into your bowl of seasoning and coat well.
  8. Pour chickpeas back onto parchment paper or silicone mat, and put back in over for remaining 5 minutes.
  9. Let cool (as long as you can wait!) and enjoy! :)
