Just made these and YUMMY! Great if salty and crunchy is your downfall!

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained
Seasoning of choice
Salt
Olive oil

Drain and rinse beans and pat dry with a paper towel. Cost in a bit of olive oil and season. Bake at 400* for 30-40 minutes until they're brown and crunchy. Add salt to taste.

Sooooo good!!

Ok so I'm attempting a healthy-ish no bake cookie recipe. I'll let you know how they taste when they've cooled.

Recipe:


* 1 ripe banana, mashed well
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup nonfat milk
* 1/2 cup peanut butter
* pinch of salt
* 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
* 2 1/2 cups instant oats (coulda used 3 but I ran out)

Put all but oats and vanilla in a pan and bring to a boil stirring a lot. Boil 1 minute. Add last 2 ingredients. Toss spoonfuls onto a pan or waxed paper and let cool. Makes 15 big ones or 30 littles.

I made these the other day and I'm not sure if I like them or not. I couldn't bake them the full time because they started to burn. Some were really crunchy/hard and others the middle was still soft. I probably won't make them again. I tried them though!

It helps if you shuffle them around every now and then.
