So few people know how to make a roasted chickpea snack, but I promise you, it’s super easy and so worth the effort.
As you know, it’s nice to have a crunchy, protein-rich snack on hand when hunger strikes. That’s why today I wanted to share my recipe for making crunchy chickpeas snacks at home with just a few simple ingredients.
Chickpeas are also called garbanzo beans and these terms are used interchangeably throughout this post and in the industry. Learning how to make a roasted chickpea snack of your own is simple and you can tweak the recipe however you like depending on if you want something salty (like this recipe calls for salt) or sweet (simply cinnamon and sugar instead of salt and pepper).
I’ve made crunchy chickpeas for years but never really thought it was a recipe worth sharing with anyone. Then my friend Amy, who recently went gluten, dairy and egg free (as a family) told me she was struggling with healthy, protein-rich snacks she could pack for herself and her kids when on the go. This recipe turned out to a perfect solution for them, as they could make a huge batch of these over the weekend, and have crunchy snacks readily available all week.
I made a batch of these for her yesterday and the entire family loved them. I am excited to have inspired her with a healthy snack that she can have fun making for her family!
