Kitchen Hack: Tasty Chickpea Nuts

 

Looking for a fun and healthful snack that has wide appeal?

Don't miss today's kitchen hack, which is all about a tasty treat that you can make anytime.

Chickpea nuts!

You can make them by drying cooked chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans) in your oven until they're nutty and crispy. Simply drain and rinse a can of chickpeas in a colander, pat dry with a paper towel, and roast everything on a lightly oiled pan for 1 hour at 325 degrees.

Allow to cool and then serve in an attractive bowl.

There are so many reasons to like them...

  1. They taste like roasted peanuts.
  2. You can season them a bunch of different ways: with chili powder, Italian seasoning, grated Parmesan cheese, and even garlic powder.
  3. They're easy to make and require only 5 minutes of your time.
  4. They're much lower in calories and less expensive than regular nuts. Consider that a half-cup of roasted chickpea nuts has only 134 calories while a half-cup of peanuts has 419 calories! Plus the chickpea nuts contain 6 grams of fiber.
  5. Chickpea nuts are only .05 per ounce while peanuts are about .23 an ounce. That is a substantial savings!
  6. You can keep cans of garbanzo beans in your pantry, ready to come out and make a delicious bowl of nuts on just an hour's notice.
