I do sometimes. And now it’s time to use this stuff before it gets old and you throw it away.
Diets? I don’t believe in diets, they only work when you follow them for the rest of your life. But I do believe in lifestyle. You are what you eat and I want to enjoy life, indulge, experiment and feel good in my skin.
Here they are: ‘crispy baked chickpeas’
A healthy snack for your next movie night or for those little in between cravings.
What do you need?
- cooked chickpeas (500gr)
- 2-3 TBSP coconut flour
- 2-3 TBSP sesame seeds (can be mixed black/white)
- 2-3 TBSP garlic powder
- a little bit of fine sugar or 1-2 TBSP of maple syrup (up to you how sweet you want it to be)
- 2-3 TBSP coconut oil or olive oil
If you use fresh chickpeas you need to wash them in water and soak them for about 8-10 hours before cooking.
When you use canned chickpeas, you need to rinse them well and pat them dry with a clean towel or paper towel.
Important, they need to be dry.
You can remove the skin of the chickpeas, but you don’t have to. I didn’t do it with mine.
- mix all the spices and ingredients together
- preheat your oven to 175C and spread the chickpeas on top of baking paper
- bake for 30 minutes
- check if they have a nice golden color, toss them gently and heat them some more for another 15-25 minutes
- try one to see if they are still soft inside, when not it’s time to take them out of the oven
- let them cool before serving
- high in protein
- rich in antioxidants and minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, folate, phosphorous
- contains a number of essential vitamins like vitamin C, A, B6, B12, K, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin
While eating them my brain already starts to think what other flavors can I try to make. Well, fresh rosemary with Himalaya salt is definitely something I try next time
Here I mixed them with chives
You can never have enough variations of a healthy snack when you have Netflix at home
