I admit that I had serious doubts about this recipe. It was posted by a friend of mine who said that it tasted like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I immediately called BS, but thought it was worth a try. I will tell you that it's not perfect, but it's 95% there. Incredible!!
So if you are looking for something sweet and crunchy, but want to stay healthy. Here you go!
1 15.5oz. can of Chick Peas
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
Cinnamon to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Drain & rinse the chickpeas. Then dry them on a paper towel. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the chick peas out in a single layer. Bake for 45 min or until crispy.
While the chick peas are still warm, toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, honey, and cinnamon. Spread them back out on the sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until caramelized.
After making this recipe, I immediately had comments from friends about what they add for seasonings. They number of combinations are endless!
It was the next morning that the magic really happened. If a recipe was able to follow through on a promise to taste like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I had to take one more step and eat it just like you would the cereal.
And magic it was!! YUM!!
DREAM. BELIEVE. ACHIEVE.
