Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas (& Carrots too)

Found a recipe I’m itching to try. If it turns out well, it’ll give us a healthy sweet snack that’s safe for the little dude. Found on Weelicious.

Roasted Cinnamon Honey Chickpeas (makes about 2 cups)

1 15 oz. Can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups cooked garbanzo beans)
1/2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Canola or Vegetable Oil
1 Tbsp Honey

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Place the beans between two paper towels and pat dry, loosening the outer skin of the beans.
3. Remove the outer skins of the beans and pat dry to remove any other excess liquid (removing the outer skin of the beans takes a few minutes, but it’s a great job for getting kids involved).
4. Whisk the cinnamon and oil in a bowl to combine, add the beans stirring to coat and place on a baking sheet.
5. Roast for 40 minutes.
6. Remove the beans from the oven, place in a bowl and toss with 1 tbsp of honey.
7. Place the beans back into the oven and roast an additional 7 minutes.
8. Cool completely and serve.

And, since these are made at the same temp as the chickpeas, I’m going to do them at the same time (as a side for our supper of tuna) and see how it goes.

Roasted Carrot Coins (Serves 4)

4 Medium Carrots, peeled and cut into coins, about 2 cups
1/4 Tsp Paprika
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/4 Tsp Kosher Salt

1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Place all of the ingredients on a baking sheet and toss to combine.
3. Roast for 30 minutes.
4. Serve.
