After a hiatus from sweets and baking, swellsweets is back with new recipes to share. Beans are a wonderful staple to keep in your pantry, not only for adding to salads and stir-frys, but also for baking. Chickpeas are one of my favorite beans. I’m so addicted to them that sometimes I go through two or three cans a week. So why not make chickpeas sweet? After all, they contain loads of protein and fiber, along with other health benefits. So dive in and give these a try.
The recipe was taken from Whole Living.
~ 2 15-oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
~ 1/4 cup honey
~ 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
~ coarse salt and black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400°. Spread chickpeas on a baking sheet and roast until dry, about 30 minutes.
2. In a medium bowl, combine honey, oil and a dash of salt and pepper.
Chickpeas can burn quickly, so be sure to pay attention to the roasting. These chickpeas can be enjoyed as an appetizer or dessert by the handful, or as a cereal with milk or yogurt.
