Chickpeas go Chips peas

Healthy Snack// Chips Peas

It’s chips but not so much. It’s minus all the gross, fatty, chemical and greasy stuff. Like. Forget Oven Baked so called ‘healthy’ chips, and DEF forget about plain chips. If you crave a big bag of chips, make these and thank me later!

I love them. Mind you, it’s a treat. So nop, you should not be making (and eating) these every single night. Unless you’re a daily 10K runner. But, instead of empty calories and no nutritional value whatsoever that you get from chips, these chickpeas are healthy and they count as nutrition. So they’re calories your body can put into good use. With plain chips, your body can’t do anything but gain weight and add some extra fat on your tummy and hips. And you don’t want that with summer lurking around the corner, right?

It’s easy PEASy. Pun intended. And it tastes delish. Can’t wait to serve these at my very next dinner party! 🙂

You’ll need

  • 1 can of chick peas (preferably organic)
  • Himalayan pink Salt
  • Spicy curry, oregano, paprika powder,… (you can season them with whatever taste you crave)
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • Baking paper

Directions

Preheat your oven to 200°C.

Remove the chickpeas from the can and rinse them very well with cold water.

Now dab them dry with a paper towel. You’ll want to make sure they’re very dry, because they’ll be extra crisp without the moist.

Add the chickpeas in a bowl and sprinkle some olive oil on top. Now add as much herbs as you want. I always start with some pink salt and add whatever I crave afterwards. Want plain salt or salt and pepper or curry… Just mix and match.

Put a baking paper on an oven tray and spread the chickpeas on top. Now pop in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Flip the chips around and pop back in the oven for another round. I would suggest 5 extra minutes, but you’ll have to watch them carefully and remove when you feel they’re crispy enough.

So so sooo good. Even the boyfriend was game. Buh-bye chips.
