Ever get hungry late into the evening? You have tried your hardest to fend off those ice cream or pretzel cravings – however, waiting too long into the night gets the best of you. You feel your tummy grumble unhappily and you end up giving in and diving into a favorite not so good for you treat.
Believe me; I’ve done that – full admittance here. However, wouldn’t’ it be nice to have a good for you treat in the house, in case those cravings get the best of you?
Well, now you can – midnight chickpea munchies! Baked in the oven for crispiness perfection, these little guys are actually a good option to snack on when you have to have that crunchy treat. And, they are *gluten free.* By now, I hope you are catching on that I really don’t make a dish that isn’t gluten free.
You will need: 2 cans of chickpeas, 2 cap fulls of olive oil, 2 tbsp. cumin, 1 tbsp. chili powder and 1 heaping tbsp. garlic powder. You can also salt and pepper to taste.
I start with pouring the chickpeas into a mixing bowl and adding all the ingredients in one at a time. Preheat the oven to 350. Line a long baking sheet with foil (I generally spray the foil with cooking spray too) and pour out the seasoned chickpeas onto the pan.
Bake for about 25 minutes – or a little longer for a crunchier taste. Yum! Snack on this at night instead of that fat filled favorite food!
