I'm a grazer. I don't eat big meals. I like to eat small meals all day. I love Kale Chips. I recently found a recipe for Chickpea Nuts and they are sssooo good. You use canned organice chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans). I rinse them and dry them completely. Then, I put them on a baking sheet and spray with my olive oil sprayer. Stir them around to get them good and coated. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bake in over at 375 degrees for an hour or until they turn deep golden brown. I stir them ever so often so they bake evenly. They are so crunchy and yummy!!!
thanks for posting this. i recently opened a can of chick peas and had some vague memory of reading a recipe similar to yours some time ago. but since i couldn't remember it completely, i just sprinkled those buggers on my salad plain which was tasty but...i am definitely going to try the toasted nut version. thanks!
I use different oils. My favorite is sunflower oil. I toss mine to coat in a bit of sea salt and nutritional yeast and make cheesey roasted chick peas. I only bake mine for 30 minutes at 375. Soo yummy! I'm so going to try to make spicey roasted chick peas, that sounds really good and I bet I can get my hubby to try em.
I eat them as a snack by themselves and also sprinkle them on salad and use them as "croutons" in soups.
Jools...You can spread a thin layer of oil on the baking sheet and then roll them around. I love Corn Nuts, which is why I bake them for an hour. I store them in a glass airproof container and they stay good for days. I carry them to school to snack on.
