Sweet, healthy, and addicting! These Clean Eating Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Chickpeas make the perfect snack! With only four ingredients, you can’t afford NOT to make these.
I’ve always wanted to try roasted chickpeas. I’ve heard they are delicious and make a great crunchy snack. Chickpeas are such a healthy food! They contain a lot of protein and fiber, which help keep you feeling full and satisfied!
There are many flavours of these roasted chickpeas you can try. The chickpeas by themselves are very mild, so any combination of spices make these delicious. But my favourite flavour combination is cinnamon sugar!
I’ve seen multiple ways to make these roasted chickpeas, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are EASY! So easy that I can’t believe I waited this long to make them.
Of course, I had to make them clean eating approved since that is how I mostly eat. It wasn’t difficult to make them clean eating approved. All I did was substitute coconut palm sugar for the brown sugar. Tastes the same to me!
There are a couple of secrets to making these Clean Eating Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Chickpeas crunchy:
1) The chickpeas must be dry. I like to drain them in a mesh sieve, then place them on a paper towel and pat, pat, pat dry!
2) Then, after roasting them plain for a few minutes, mix them with the cinnamon sugar mixture and then roast again.
Doing those two things allows the chickpeas to become even more crunchy.
The chickpeas stay crunchy for about a day, then after that they lose their crunch. However, they are still flavourful and can be eaten. I like to make these roasted chickpeas as a snack for my boys, and they also make a great salad topper.
Whichever way you choose to enjoy them, I’m sure you’ll love this healthy, sweet snack idea!
