The first comes from one of my new favorite blogs “Chocolate Covered Katie”. She makes healthy deserts..no seriously, like spinach ice cream and zucchini chocolate grasshopper pie. Well…this one is AMAZING! I served it for dessert last night and everyone loved it (even my husband who can smell “healthy” a mile away). After they finished I told them it was primarily made of chickpeas! They were shocked and happy! She calls it “Blondie Batter Dip”. It is just like a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough. We dipped apples and graham crackers in it. Divine!

Next up…Hummus! We love it on our sandwiches, crackers, as a dip for carrots…well really any veggie and just about anything else we can think of to put it on. I particularly love it with sun dried tomatoes, so this recipe is my new favorite.
Last but not least…my new snacking addiction. Roasted chickpeas! Yummy…they kind of remind me of the corn nuts I had every once in a while as a child…but not as hard. So good. I found this recipe for Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas and found that I like them a bit more if I leave them in the vinegar for about 15 mins. instead of 30. YUM.
Hope you try at least one of these…if you do, let me know! Do you have any great chickpea recipes?
