Well, I have a new favorite snack! This afternoon, I was experimenting with a new crockpot recipe, which I used canned chickpeas. I had a handful left over and didn’t want to throw them away. I remembered seeing a recipe once on Pinterest about baking chickpeas, so I decided to give it a whirl. I used Wildtree’s Rockin’ Moroccan Rub and their Lemon Grapeseed Oil to get bolder flavors. They turned out amazing and I wished that I had made more. Chickpeas (or Garbanzo Beans) are great power packed goodies and offer great benefits like:
- Lowering cholesterol
- Promote Heart Health
- Boost your energy levels
- Packs a nice punch of Iron, Folic Acid & Trace Minerals
- Helps with Diabetes Maintenance
Here is the recipe for this healthy and tasty snack. Try them out and let me know how you liked them!
1/2 Cup of Canned Organic Garbanzo Beans or Chickpeas (Rinsed)
1 Tblspn of Wildtree’s Zesty Lemon Grapeseed Oil
1 Tblspn of Wildtree’s Rockin’ Moroccan Rub (or any other Moroccan Rub)
Dash of Cinnamon
Dash of Adobo Seasoning
A few grinds of Fresh Black Pepper & Pink Himalayan Salt
Mix everything in a bowl so that the chickpeas are coated. Pour the beans on a greased cookie sheet and bake on 400 degrees for about 15 – 20 minutes. They will look crispy and begin to split. I ate them warm and they were delicious, but they were also good at room temperature.
