Recipe: Kid Friendly Roasted Chickpeas

August 15, 2014

Kid Friendly Roasted Chickpeas (vegan, gluten free, grain free)

My daughter, Little A LOVES this recipe and it's so simple and easy that it's just perfect kid food! My daughter gobbles them up in minutes. I like to make them as part of her dinner then I save the left overs for the next day as her snack. I like to use two cans of chickpeas because my husband really loves them as well. I recently introduced this recipe to my parents and even my skeptic father loved them! My mom is making them weekly now!

2 cans of chickpeas (if I'm going to use canned anything, I make sure it is a lined BPA free can. Eden Organic is a great brand).
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
Salt, garlic powder, cumin and turmeric

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Put chickpeas in a big bowl and stir in coconut oil and as much of each spice as desired. Spread chickpeas on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes or until crispy.

See how easy that is! They have a great crunchy/snack factor. I guarantee you can't stop eating them once you start.

Next time I'm going to dress them in apple cider vinegar and salt to make salt and vinegar chickpeas! Yum!

Let me know what you think if you try them !

And if you make any of my recipes, feel free to use the hashtag #naturallylauren on social media. I'd love to see your creations!

Till next time!
