Let your creativity run wild and season the roasted chickpeas to your liking.

Roasted chickpeas are ideal as a spicy snack and are low in carbs. All it takes is three ingredients!

Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 200 g chickpeas (pre-cooked, canned)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons spice mix of your choice

Approximately per serving:

  • 168 calories
  • 3 grams of fat
  • 27 grams of carbs
  • 9 grams of protein

Preparation time:

  • 5 minutes (plus 15 minutes cooking and cooling)

And here’s how it’s done:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees with air circulation.
  2. Briefly rinse the chickpeas and allow to drain.
  3. Place the legumes in a bowl and toss with the olive oil and spices. Spread the chickpeas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 15 minutes until golden and crispy. Done!

There are now many healthy snack alternatives. However, this often means going without the proper taste and bite. With our baked legume snack idea, that dilemma is a thing of the past! Season your roasted chickpeas to your personal taste. Paprika, chilli, ras el hanout and cumin as well as Italian herbs also go well with it. Try baked chickpeas – you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make your own healthy snack.

Chickpeas are a food that you should have in stock anyway. Adding to their versatility, they get plenty of protein, low carbs, and a high proportion of folic acid. Moreover, they can be used in many ways – for example as homemade chickpea crisps. But you should not only have chickpeas in stock, but also these ten healthy foods for a balanced diet. Do you like to snack on something sweet once in a while? Then low carb pomegranate crisps with white chocolate glaze are perfect for carefree enjoyment.
