Garlic Dill Chickpea Chips

GARLIC DILL CHICKPEA CHIPS

I cant be the only person that craves a crunchy treat with my Saturday evening movie. I also can’t be the only person who gets a painful and bloated stomach from the stereotypical movie treats like popcorn and 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).

WHY CHICKPEAS?

- 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.

GARLIC DILL!

RECIPE:

-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


Instructions:

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!
