GARLIC DILL CHICKPEA CHIPS
Desperate for a crunchy snack I started making chickpea chips.
With less oil and salt then the standard potato chip I could once again have my Saturday night treat, without spending Sunday morning in the bathroom ( I know TMI but I am being honest).
- They are packed with nutrients, like healthy carbs and protein
- They make you feel fuller from their high fiber and protein content
-Their high fiber content also helps regulate digestion
- They are low on the glycemic index chart, which means they can help regulate blood sugar
- They are iron rich, containing 26% of your daily iron in just 1 cup!
As you can see the list of reasons to swap out your standard potato chips for this protein packed alternative is endless!
And since you can whip up a batch of these bad boys in under 30 minutes there's really no reason not to make the swap.
Plus the flavour possibilities are ENDLESSS, so lets start with a classic and one of my all time favourites.
-1 cup of cooked or canned chickpeas
- 1 teaspoon of avocado oil
- 1 teaspoon dill weed
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon of sea salt
Step one: preheat oven to 450 degrees
Step two: mix chickpeas, oil, lemon juice, and spices in a bowl making sure all of the chickpeas are evenly coated
Step three: line a pan with parchment paper and spread the chickpeas on it.
Step four: bake for 20-25 minutes (or until crunchy) Be sure the shake the pan half way through.
Step five: Curl up with your movie and enjoy (maybe let them cool a bit first)
****Another great use for these chickpeas is as a replacement for croutons adding a flavorful, protein packed crunch to any salad!
