Cinnamon Sugar Roasted ChickpeasSweet, crunchy, cinnamon-y, protein-packed and oh so delicious, this will be your new go-to snacks, I guarantee.

You can even try out different flavor combos if sweet snacks are not your thang. If you’ve checked out my ebook, Sweet Simple Vegan: Lunch and Dinner, I shared my favorite variation of these, crunchy chili chickpeas, paired with my detox soup! If you haven’t checked it out, you can find it here.Cinnamon Sugar Roasted ChickpeasYou can either used canned chickpeas (preferrably organic, no salt added), or you can make chickpeas of your own. I never used to make them on my own, but I realized just how easy it actually was, and this is the method I now use:

  • Place the dry  chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak overnight, or about 12 hours.
  • Drain and transfer to a large cooking pot. Cover them with twice their amount in water and bring to a boil.
  • Cover and allow to simmer for approximately one hour. (Taste test to be sure they are cooked.) Drain and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Once the chickpeas are cooled (if made from dry), you can keep them covered in the refrigerator for three days or freeze in an airtight container for a month.

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 2-3

  • 2 Tablespoons organic coconut palm sugar (I use Better Body Foods)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

Chickpeas

  1. Dried: Place chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Allow them to soak overnight, or about 12 hours. Drain and transfer to a large cooking pot. Cover them with twice their amount in water and bring to a boil. Cover and allow to simmer for approximately one hour. (Taste test to be sure they are cooked.) Drain and cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Canned: Drain and rinse under running water for 1 minute
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line one baking sheet and drain the chickpeas.
  4. Place into a bowl and toss with all of the ingredients.
  5. Pour the chickpeas evenly over the baking sheet and place into the oven and for 40 minutes, tossing every 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven, and cool for 15 minutes.

Notes

If you would like to remove the outer “skin, flatten the chickpeas out and roll them against a flat surface. I’ve read that the outer “skin” sometimes burns whilst roasting, but I personally have never had this problem.
Once the chickpeas are cooled (if made from dry), you can keep them covered in the refrigerator for three days or freeze in an airtight container for a month.
If the chickpeas are not sweet or cinnamon-y enough, add more of either to taste after cooling 🙂
