Chickpea “chips”

I’m a snacker by nature. My mom says from the time I started eating she had to carry snacks in her purse because I was ALWAYS hungry. To this day I would prefer to eat little meals every hour instead of three meals a day. Unfortunately this leads me to unhealthy choices like cereal, energy bars, cookies and the like. That is, until I found this recipe floating around Pinterest.

Chickpea chips

This recipe is so versatile and simple. You need a can of garbanzo beans/chickpeas, a little olive oil, and flavoring. For this recipe I used garlic powder but the options are endless.

The downside to these is how hard it is to eat only one serving! One can of beans should make about 4 servings of “chips”… but they are so hard to stop eating! Just keep telling yourself with all that fiber it has to be good for you 😉

Try them with cayenne pepper for a little spice or cinnamon and sugar for something sweet.

Chickpea “chips”
