Sweet & Salty Roasted Chia Chickpeas

Ok everyone, prepare for a game changer!

Ingredients

About the ingredients

  • Chickpeas
    • Chickpeas offer specific health benefits, and consuming them regularly boosts your intake of a few key nutrients.
  • Coconut Oil
    • Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.” Its unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health.
  • Pink Salt
    • Himalayan salt is a natural occurring substance. Beside sodium chloride, it contains minerals that are essential to the human body.
  • Rapadura Sugar
    • Rapadura is the pure juice extracted from the sugar cane. It has not been cooked at high heats, and spun to change it into crystals, and the molasses have not been separated from the sugar. It is produced organically, and does not contain chemicals or anti-caking agents.
  • Chia Seeds
    • Chia Seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories. Gram for gram Chia Seeds contain more Omega-3s than salmon.

Directions

  • Drain the Chickpeas
  • Dry them with kitchen roll
  • Add to a bowl with coconut oil
  • Place on baking tray in preheated oven on middle shelf at 140 degrees c
  • After 20 mins turn the chickpeas
  • When golden brown (the browner the chickpea the more crunchy) remove from oven and add Salt, Sugar and Chia Seeds
  • Allow to cool and consume all of the chickpeas! 🙂

I hope you enjoy these babies as much as I do!
