1. Roasted Honey and Cinnamon Chickpeas
1 can chick peas
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp honey
1/8 tsp sea salt
1. Preheat oven to 375 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander. Place them on a towel to dry off.
3. Spread chickpeas on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until crispy. Test one; if it’s still soft, bake for longer.
4. While the chickpeas are still hot, toss them in a bowl with the oil, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Enjoy as is, or for a caramelized effect, place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
5. Store leftover chickpeas in an airtight container (but let’s be honest, there won’t be any leftovers, will there?!)
2. Baked Kale Chips
1. Wash kale and tear leaves from the stem.
2. Drizzle with olive oil (I kinda rubbed it to make sure each piece got some)
3. Sprinkle with seasoning of your choice, a little goes a long way (I did cajun, a touch of salt and pepper)
4. Bake at 400F for 20 min or until crispy.
3. Granola Balls
2 cups rolled oats, 1 cup ground flax seed
1 1/3 cup shredded coconut, 1 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup honey, 1 tbsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips (70% cocoa is the healthiest option)
MIX, ROLL, REFRIGERATE, EAT!!
Great thing about these is that you can switch up any of the ingredients.
Here's a few ideas:
Instead of ground flaxseeds, use hemp seeds, or chia seeds. (All 3 are a really great protein/fiber!)
Instead of peanut butter use almond butter, and switch the vanilla extract to almond extract!
If you’re not a chocolate fan, chop up some dried cranberries, or dried fruit of your choice!
If you want to make it an even healthier option, use buckwheat honey!!
