Whilst O and M were both napping (at the same time!) yesterday I decided to try a recipe that I had pinned on my Pinterest account for a while – Roasted Chickpeas. I found the recipe on Dashing Dish but changed the recipe slightly as we didn’t have all the ingredients in.
These are really delicious and have so much flavour! Perfect for a snack or part of a meal.
1 can of chickpeas
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 pkts Stevia or 1tbs of sweetener
1/4 cup parmesan cheese grated
2 tbs Maple Syrup (or honey)
Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Blot dry with a paper towel (the more you dry them the crispier they will become).
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.
Spread the chickpeas over the baking sheet in a single layer.
In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, salt, sweetener and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chickpeas on the baking sheet.
Bake the chickpeas for 15-20 minutes, until they look slightly crispy, remove from the oven and drizzle the maple syrup (or honey) over the chickpeas and return to the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes or until chickpeas are lightly golden brown.
*These can be stored in the fridge for up to one week.
