Light Snacks

Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas are wonderful. They make hummus, they’re great for curries and are also a pleasantly delicious snack that is also very filling, This recipe is a delicious mix of spice and a smoky flavor that will keep you wanting more. You will soon realize just how addictive these crunchy delights can be. The flavor of the liquid smoke gives them a pleasant enhanced flavor that mixes perfectly with the spicy paprika.

How about something sweet to have on the side. The recipe for my Chocolate Coconut Bars take only a short time to make and are very appetizing. Or, maybe you want something a little more moreish, in that case, you will love the Cookie Dough Peanut Bites, they’re both decent and dangerously addictive.
