Make your Own: Roasted Chickpeas

Happy weekend!

We started it off with a little BBQ at a friend’s house, drinking wine and playing games last night. Today I’ve got a day planned with the girls, trying on dresses, grabbing lunch, and enjoying the great outdoors. And tomorrow we are headed to the cabin for the day. Yep, a solid weekend planned indeed :)

Yesterday we were hanging out at home when I made us up this little snack. Roasted Chickpeas. The bf used to not like chickpeas (or so he thought!). He loved these though (I think even more so than I did!).

I bought a bag of roasted chickpeas awhile back, but they were wasabi flavored (don’t ask me what I was thinking). And then I figured, why not make my own?!

So I did! Crispy little balls of deliciousness. Enjoy :)

  1. I was never a huge fan of chickpeas, but I thought I’d give this recipe a shot and try to get into them. This recipe is soo amazing! I finished them all in one day. I’m currently making 2 bags worth of them. I’ve been craving them ever since. And I love the fact that it’s so much healthier than buying something at the store. I will be making this again and again!!!!

      Victoria – that is so great! I think I mentioned in the post that my boyfriend was also not a fan of chickpeas until he tried this roasted version. And yes, so much healthier than store-bought snacks! Thanks for posting! :)
