Sweet Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

I am so much hooked to Pinterest these days, its a great place to pin and categorize all things which we like. There are great resources out there ranging from photography to yum recipes, and I am loving it. I came across this recipe in Pinterest which is from The Pastry Affair and I knew that this is one of the recipe which is easy to make, healthy and quite addictive. Apart from the baking time, this requires just a few minutes of assembling. 


Ingredients:

Chickpeas/ Garbanzo Beans- 2 Cups cooked or one 15 ounce can
Cinnamon Powder- 1 Teaspoon
Granulated Sugar- 1.5 Tablespoon
Canola Oil- 3 Teaspoons
Maple Syrup/ Honey- 1 Tablespoon

Procedure:

Preheat the oven to 190 Degrees C. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and keep aside. In a small bowl mix together oil, cinnamon and sugar. Now mix this paste with chickpeas so that beans is evenly coated. Spread the chickpeas on  baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes, shake the tray in between for one or two times. After 45 minutes check for the crispiness. If more crispiness is required then bake for few more minutes.

After the beans are baked take them out of the oven and pour maple syrup/ honey on it while it is still hot. Evenly coat the beans with the syrup and let dry for sometime. Store in an airtight container, but mine never made it to the container, the beans were devoured within the first hour of baking :)

    1. To be honest Anita, the eating habits which I developed over 30 years of my life are difficult to give up and not leaving me..after finishing the 21 days vegan challenge I have completely stopped milk tea and try to take less of curd on most days. There are days when I am completely vegan but some days I am not, its difficult to sometimes find vegan substitute. So it will take me more time to become completely vegan.
