Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

I don’t know why or how or where my love of chickpeas first got started, but I am obsessed with this bean. I used to buy the most massive cans of them from Costco in Maryland, but sadly they do not sell them here wlEmoticon sadsmile5 Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

Luckily, I don’t have to relegate my chickpea eating time to meals or savory snacks because I’ve got a sweet chickpea recipe today. IMG 6302 thumb Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

Sweet PB Chickpeas

All you need are five six ingredients –

1/4 cup peanut flour

1 Tb. Maple syrup

1 Tb. Olive Oil

Dash of salt and cinnamon (I use a lot!)

A can of chickpeas (or garbanzo beans)IMG 6292 thumb Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

Mix the first five ingredients together. Then, pour the mixture on a can of rinsed chickpeas and toss to coat. Try not to let them all squish together when you first put them in or they’ll stick a bit.

Roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until charred to your liking, tossing periodically. IMG 6294 thumb Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

The beans are packed with fiber and protein, but I love that the peanut powder adds an extra punch of protein too!IMG 6296 thumb Sweet PB Chickpea Snack

    I think I’m going to try that- I’ve been looking for other sources of protein, since I don’t really like eating meat, more then once a day, and I need protein pretty much every time I eat, so this’ll be good ^_^
    Oh, and random (but this recipe made me think of it for some reason)- remember those Nutella to-go things you said Ben ordered a while back? (I just remembered today) a month or so ago, I was running, and on the sidewalk was an empty Nutella to-go, and I thought of Ben! Hehe! XP

    Isn’t the big can of chickpeas the best and it’s less than $3. Peanut flour is pretty great too. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Looks delicious!!
