Crispy Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

 

To say that last week was a busy rush of insanity would be a minor understatement. You saw the roundup right? I was running from to and fro on the UnDiet book promo train and when I wasn’t out and about – I was at my computer chatting up UnDiet for our upcoming stops on the virtual Book Tour.

I can honestly say, life has never been quite so hectic, and maybe quite as exciting, as it is right now. It may surprise you to know that when I am busy or deeply focused in my work – even when my work is all about great food – I often forget to get the great food into my body.

For this reason, I have been ensuring that I take time on the weekends to prep some dense, easy grab and go power snacks to make sure my blood sugar remains stable and that I am always eating for energy. I get my fat and protein in to keep my brain humming along and loads of flavour to keep my taste buds dancing. And so this is what I’ve been making – roasted chickpeas!

All last week, you could hear me coming from a mile away as my bag tinkle-clinked to the sound of Crispy Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas clattering around in my Wean Tubs. These were my go-to snack.

roasted Chickpeas Are Awesome

  • Their fiberrificness supports digestive health.
  • They are packed with anti-oxidants for immune support.
  • The combo of fibre and protein makes them a blood sugar regulation dream.
  • The denseness of their fibre increases satiety – meaning you can eat less and feel fuelled and full longer.

Crunchy roasted chickpeas

Most of us use chickpeas as a hummus spread, which is awesome. Some of us love to use them in stews like I do in my one pot meals, but few of us eat them as an easy snack in place of nuts or chips. Yes – a perfect nut-free, gluten-free, UnDiet loving snack!

Make them! And make lots. They go quickly! The recipe for crunchy roasted chickpeas below is for one organic can (or about 2 cups of cooked). I recommend doubling the recipe.

    I have to try making these again, using your recipe. A while back I tried them using another blogger’s recipe and I couldn’t get them crunchy. They sound delicious to me and would be a great alternative to hummus.

  2. Jen @ Existential Evolution says:

      Hehehe whoops- all fixed now, Thanks for the heads up! Definitely don’t want to toss chicken peas in cinnamon…whatever that means!

    Just made these. Good for a crunchy snack, although I completely smoked out my kitchen making them ;)

  6. Rosanna says:

  8. Rachel says:

    These are my favourite go-to snacks when I’m itching for a crunchy snack. I even managed to toss them together and bake them while I was getting ready for work the next day. I was stoked the whole day knowing I got to come home to them. Great for a snack or to sprinkle over salads. Will definitely make again!

    Hi. I’m in Scotland. We don’t do chipotle sauce here. I’m Paleo.
    What can I use instead?
    Thank you! X
