Honey-Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas

Baked crispy chickpeas topped coated in honey and cinnamon. The perfect healthy snack! 

Honey-Roasted Cinnamon Chickpeas


I have been feeling insanely snacky lately. For example, I am not one to buy potato chips while grocery shopping. I am just not tempted. But the other day, I actually bought a bag of chips and ate it that very same day.

I just chalk it up to finishing a week of substituting a calculus class for 8 hours a day.

But after that potato chip binge, I knew I needed to find a healthier option for when my snacking self makes its appearance again. Enter these honey roasted chickpeas!!

They are crunchy to satisfy your urge to bite into something, and are sweet without being overly sweet, if you know what I mean.

And while my favorite roasted chickpea recipe is still the salt and vinegar roasted chickpeas that I made a while ago, but if I'm looking for a healthy sweet snack, I will look no further than these chickpeas.

I prefer my chickpeas a little on the crunchy side, but you can adjust the cooking time according to your preference.

Happy snacking!

  5. I love your sweet twist on roasted chickpeas! I've made spicy, savory, and sour versions many times in the past, but never sweet. I'd love to try this out with maple syrup instead of honey.
