Roasted Chickpea Snacks

Good morning!

How are you?! I got back from the conference late last night and I was t.i.r.e.d. Seriously fabulous conference, and I feel so lucky to have been there!

Still on a high from teaching a fun super sweaty bootcamp, though(!!)-my hair is wet b/c of all the sweat…..:

I ate a great tasting -new-to-me bar (not necessarily the best stats, but it was what I needed at the time):

I made some delicious chickpea snacks the other day, and I just HAVE to share the recipes with you!

  1. ummm yes!! i actually have a bag of chickpeas that i need to use/cook, so this is perfect!!

  2. Oh yum both of those sound awesome!! I need to try them asap :). I bet that snacking on the lime ones while sipping on a marg would be nice too haha.

  3. oooo the cocoa cinnamon sound good, I have such a sweet tooth!

  4. ok i need to make these stat–i’ve been meaning to roast chickpeas and keep forgetting! For these i would def use canned chickpeas but if i’m making falafel then I need to use “from scratch” chickpeas since they hold together a lot better then the canned ones.

    Today I am thankful for date night with Kevin, I haven’t gotten to see him much this week and I miss him!

  5. i’ve never tried roasted chickpeas before, but i am definitely going to now! i love this idea. it looks so easy too! the cocoa cinnamon ones especially sound amazing!

  6. I’m going to make these today!

  7. I loooove roasted chickpeas, but I’ve only ever had them savory! I really need to try the sweet ones. I can’t remember where I saw it, but someone posted a recipe for cinnamon sugar ones that sounded so good.

  8. I can’t believe I have still never roasted chickpeas! NEED TO!

  9. I really need to try these recipes 😀 Thanks sweetheart! You have such great recipes 😀 Happy you had a great time at the conference! Love you

  10. I have always wanted to try roasting chickpeas, I am sure the flavor that comes out is just delicious! Will be giving this a go soon :)

    Hi Annette! I just discovered your blog this week and I adore it! So weird – I just used chickpeas yesterday to make some homemade hummus! Yummy! I’ve never had roasted chickpeas but I can’t wait to make them :)

    P.S – After reading your blog I’ve decided to try a BodyPump class at my gym. I have low bone density (I’m only 27) because of a genetic blood disorder (thalassaemia) I have, so I’m always on the lookout for weight bearing activities. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    • Thank YOU, Belinda! Enjoy the class! Make sure you go 2-3 times before you decide whether you like it or not (takes a bit of getting used to it), and do YOUR best (don’t worry about what others are lifting).

      I bet that homemade hummus was delish!

  12. Can’t wait to try these…thanks!
