Is it a kix? Is it a dog-kibble? No! It’s SUPER…roasted-chickpeas!
These are probably one of the easiest, most delicious things that I have ever made. They, believe-it-or-not, sort of taste really like Kix.
But those babies are not kix. They are chickpeas (AKA garbanzo beans). And they are so simple and interesting that they will make you re-excited about your food once again. Or at the very least pleasantly content with your food choice.
Peanutty Roasted Chickpeas
– 1 can (or 1 2/3 c prepared) chickpeas
– 3 tbsp peanut flour
– 1 tbsp stevia for baking
– 1/4 tsp sea salt
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375˚F. Drain and rinse a can of chickpeas. Spread out on a baking sheet and pat dry with some paper towels. (Alternatively: If you’re like me, and made your chickpeas ahead of time, go ahead and skip the drain and rinse part)
Step 2: Sprinkle the remaining ingredients (3 tbsp peanut flour, 1 tbsp stevia for baking, 1/4 tsp salt) onto the chickpeas. Toss and stir until the chickpeas are nicely coated.
Step 3: Place baking sheet in your 375˚F oven. Bake for 45-55 minutes; shaking pan ever 15 minutes. Taste test starting at the 45 minute mark: you want a dry, crunchy chickpea.
I enjoyed these as is for a few days as a simple snack. Then, I got creative and decided to add them to a raw and roasted salad. The result was epicly delicious.
Alright, back to either non-pleasure-reading for school or maybe just bed. Either way there will definitely be sunflower seed butter involved.
