Sometimes I find when 3:00 rolls around I am really craving a little snack, preferably sweet, that can carry me through till dinner. My latest obsession are roasted chickpeas (either canned or dried and soaked). Lately I’ve been tossing a can of chickpeas with about 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 heaping tsp of cinnamon and a sprinkle of coconut sugar. I then bake them on a foil lined baking sheet at 400-425 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, shaking the sheet after 10 minutes. You want the chickpeas to be crispy but not burnt. I love snacking on these little bad boys because they give me the sweetness i’m after, as well as the staying power from the protein and fibre to get me through till dinner. If your not a sweet person I have also tossed them with chili and cumin powder as a great vegetarian taco meat substitute in Mexican themed bowls, salads, stir-fry’s etc., as long as you mix lots of guacamole in whatever your eating you will be in love!
I am a snacker/grazer so these little chickpeas are perfect for me; they are also super portable as an on-the-go snack.
Are you a snacky person? What are some of your go to snacks? Do you crave sweet treats like me or are you more savory?
I have class again tonight so i’ll be back later with a little tid-bit on what we learnt 🙂
