Roasted Chickpeas

During a conversation with another mom about how to get more protein and iron into Kidster we got onto the subject about 'roasted chickpeas'.  I've never heard of this and was intrigued!  I followed the link to this lovely recipe: Sally's Baking Addiction - Roasted Chickpeas

The recipe is how to make sweet cinnamon flavored roasted chickpeas.  Hubster and I are doing such a good job losing weight I didn't want to make them sweet.  So I used salt and pepper and Italian seasonings instead.  They are delicious!  Super crunchy and 1/4c is only 86 calories!  I measured out 1/4c and kept them in a container close at hand and munched on them when I was feeling 'snacky'.

I learned a valuable lesson with this though, do NOT use a Silpat.  They are the most crunchy when baked on a regular cookie sheet.  Go figure.

I didn't take enough pictures of the 'process' but this should delight your senses!

Yummy roasted chickepeas!

What is YOUR favorite crunchy snack?


  1. I am definitely going to try these. They look really yummy.

  2. You could even do a wasabe pea version!
