Roasted Chickpeas Make A Great Substitute For Chips
I must admit, I love to eat snacks.
Whether it is after school or a mid-day treat, I always seem to find myself searching for snacks. I wanted to share with you my favorite easy snacks.
Right now, I love chickpeas and although hummus is a great snack, roasted chickpeas are simple yet delicious. What I love about roasted chickpeas is how easy the recipe is and how I always seem to have chickpeas in my pantry.
I start by draining the chickpeas, give them a good rinse, and then dry the chickpeas with a paper towel. I pour the chickpeas on a sheet pan and then toss them in olive oil and a small amount of salt.
The cooking process takes the most time, about an hour. I put the chickpeas in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes. I give the pan a good shake and then pop it back in the oven for another 30 minutes. To make sure I get the crunchiness I want, I let the chickpeas sit and cool for about an hour and then I package them.
I love this snack because I always have the ingredients, and I also am eating something healthier than chips. I love peanut butter so much and am always craving it.
To satisfy my peanut butter craving, I cut a banana into small rounds and then place a dollop of peanut butter on top. You can eat the snack like this, but I like to put it in the freezer for a little while to make the snack super cold.
