Healthy (easy) snack - Cinnamon Chickpeas

This is a great healthy snack to make for your toddlers...  (And the older kids too!)

Cinnamon Chickpeas

Combine 2tsp sugar
1tsp cinnamon
1/4tsp salt
Add 1 can of rinsed and drained chickpeas (or equivalent of prepared dried chickpeas).

Mix the first 3 ingredients, and add to the chickpeas. Toss until evenly coated.

Spread onto a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-60 minutes or until crunchy.

I personally like them on the crunchy side, but you can take them out sooner so they are softer for toddlers. These aren't as lipsmacking as roasted peanuts etc... but they are addictive! They are also packed full of protein and have all the healthy benefits of the cinnamon. Read here for 10 healthy benefits of cinnamon.
