Sweet & Salty Baked Chick Peas

Saturday, 7 February 2015 ·

Snacking can be one of the hardest habits to kick, especially if you work from home so you don't have someone raising their eyebrows every time you venture to the kitchen. There's nothing better to make you think twice than someone making you feel guilty. But what's even better than that? How about some healthy and super tasty snacks that will most definitely curb those cravings! 

These sweet and salty baked chick peas are easy to make and I can almost guarantee that you'll already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard. You can also adapt the basic recipe and switch out the cinnamon for whatever other spice you fancy. Paprika might be a nice option! 


- 400g tin of chick peas
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1.5 tsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp sea salt

How to...

1. Drain the chick peas and rinse with cold water then spread evenly on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper and bake at 220 degrees celsius. 

2. Transfer the baked chick peas into a small bowl, add all other ingredients and mix thoroughly - I would recommend just adding a small pinch of cinnamon (or your spice of choice) and tasting as you go along so you don't overdo it. 

3. Last but not least you get to tuck in and enjoy. I love these while they're still hot but they're also tasty at room temperature. Although they taste the best the day they're baked you can also store them in an air tight container for 2-3 days. 

It blows my mind how easy these are to make. As someone who absolutely adores crisps I'm constantly looking for a healthier alternative and these may just do the trick. I'm looking forward to trying some different flavours soon - I'm thinking of keeping it savoury next time and trying salt and vinegar. 

I'd love some more ideas for guilt free snacks so let me know what you love in the comments section below.
