The cute little chickpeas that make their way into your soups and hummus are now a super addicting snack!
These Crispy Roasted Chickpeas are my new favourite snack. I’ve seriously been making at least 2 batches a week for sometime now and I.can’t.get.enough.
They are crispy and just oh-so delicious – the perfect healthy TV or movie watching snack. These crispy roasted chickpeas are gluten free, vegan and super easy to make too!
But seriously, the best TV watching snack!
Is there a better TV show to be watching this weekend (and then probably re-watch it all over again) than Fuller House on Netflix?!
If you couldn’t tell, we are excited over here. Very excited.
Last year, Joshua and I watched every single episode of Full House on Netflix. Every.Single.One. I loved it. So much.
Everyone has those shows that they were absolutely obsessed with as a kid. Full House was that for me. And I think going back and re-watching all your favourite episode so many years later is quite the experience. It’s crazy how much I remember about the show. From specific lines or jokes to what’s going to happen next to OMG I actually can’t believe that happened. It’s great and totally weird all at the same time. It’s like being a kid all over again.
So, this weekend you can bet I will be ‘gramin’ all things Fuller House and all things TV watching snacks, like these super delish Crispy Roasted Chickpeas.
WHY I LOVE THIS CRISPY ROASTED CHICKPEAS RECIPE
In sticking with all things easy-peasy, I bring you crispy roasted chickpeas. This healthy snack uses only 4 ingredients and is completely gluten free, vegan, healthy, clean… and insert the many other health-conscious buzzwords here.
Finding healthy snacks is tough, friends. I struggle with this all time. I know when I am craving a kind of salty, kind of savoury snack carrot sticks will just not cut it. I need something more. And something that’s not going to make me feel all icky afterwards either. (I’m talking to you bag of potato chips!)
So, obviously I was thrilled when I first this chickpea recipe. I find this snack to be so satisfying, and seriously, SOOOO addicting. I betcha can’t eat just one! The fiber! The protein! The healthy fats! I love it all.
And not only are these crispy roasted chickpeas a great snack, I also love to use them as a salad topper or a garnish for your favourite soup. Seriously. crispy roasted chickpeas are the new and improved crouton. So good. And definitely more nutrition than your standard, super processed dried bread.
Next to black beans, chickpeas are my favourite bean. You can bet that I always have 6 cans of no-sodium added chickpeas on hand for when I need a healthy snack or when Joshua and I decide it’s TV show marathon night and need something crunchy to munch on.
