Crunchy Kettle Corn Chickpeas, 4.5 grams protein, 120 calories per ounce

IMG_2768This is a sugar-free and gluten-free high-protein snack that is perfect for keeping around for an emergency crunch while working, or at the movies.  Besides being an excellent vegan and gluten-free source of protein and fiber, chickpeas also contain exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6 and magnesium. This versatile snack will surprise you in flavor and nutrients. Compare to popcorn, at 106 calories and 3 grams protein per ounce, but with little nutritional value.  Refrigerate leftovers.



Preheat oven to 500. Mix all ingredients together slowly, making sure the chickpeas do not crush. Spread mixture in a flat oven pan.  Sprinkle with salt,  favorite spices, and Kettle Corn Seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes, shuffle and break apart mixture. Bake for an additional 20 minutes, tossing frequently. Remove from oven when edges turn brown. Enjoy room temperature or warm.
