Honey Roasted Chickpeas

Midnight munchies begin to call your name and your hand slowly reaches for a chocolate-coated bar when something catches your eye.  A small, roasted, honey and cinnamon
wafted chickpea.

These tasty little bites are a great snack to have when those munchies begin screaming your name.  The roast gives them a hard outer shell and crunchy texture.  The honey and cinnamon please your sweet tooth.  All of these combined for a healthier snack when the time comes.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

  1. You can eat them two ways: coat them after baking them and begin eating or cook them again for a more caramelized, outer shell.
  2. Make two or three of these batches for a snack at a party or just for yourself.  They are addicting!!!!
  3. They store well in the fridge and keep their hard shell if they are baked twice.
  4. I nixed the sea salt because garbanzo beans are already salty as it is.

These tasty treats are a great find.  Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein but are still a sugared carbohydrate.  Make sure to give yourself a serving size, then place the rest away or else you’ll eat them all at once.  Curve those midnight cravings with a healthier treat.
