As a child, I loved most all beans, but I would not eat chickpeas. There was something about them that just turned me off. It wasn’t until I got to college and learned that hummus was made from chickpeas that I gave their “natural” form a try. And of course, I loved them!
Our family does not eat a lot of legumes/beans, but when we do one of our favorite ways to prepare them is to bake them in the oven. They can be made sweet or savory. Today’s recipe is a simple sweet version: cinnamon baked chickpeas.
*I used a silicon baking mat but you may use parchment paper or oil so that the chickpeas do not stick to the baking pan.
They make great salad toppers!
