    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2-4

    Yield:

    Cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (548 ml) can chickpeas, Drained and Rinsed (Patted Dry)
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 teaspoons kettlecorn-flavoured popcorn seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Drain and rinse the can of chickpeas over the sink, using a colander.
    2. 2
      Pat-dry the chickpeas with a paper towel so they're not dripping of any excess water. They should still be moist.
    3. 3
      Spread the chickpeas out evenly on a cookie sheet, or inside a metal cake pan. Something with short edges will be best so you can let the chickpeas roll around, and not lose any in the process ;-).
    4. 4
      Sprinkle the kettlecorn popcorn seasoning, or substitute the salt/sugar mixture, on top of the chickpeas. Then, do the same with the cinnamon. Tilt the pan a few times to evenly coat the chickpeas. Repeat if necessary with the remaining seasoning and cinnamon to taste. Use all of it for a more intense sweet/salty-tasting snack.
    5. 5
      Set oven to Broil, and broil for about 20-25 minutes. Be sure to take out the pan and/or move the chickpeas around so they don't stick to the bottom of the pan, and broil evenly.
    6. 6
      When finished, the chickpeas should be golden, a little dry on the outside and a little chewy still on the inside. If you want them crunchier, keep them in longer. I like mine a little chewy.

      This is a very yummy alternative to crisps or crackers! I really liked the seasoning but somehow the chickpeas smelled much better, than they tasted. The cinnamon didnt come through enough. But apart from that I really liked these and am glad to have tried this unique recipe. I will definitely make these again playing around with the seasoning a bit.
      Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us!
