- I love healthy recipes.
- I love delicious tasting recipes.
- I don’t care for long ingredient lists- simple is good!
This chickpea recipe is no exception to my requirements…
Chick P’s & P.B
- 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained *(see note below)
- 1 heaping tbsp peanut butter (other nut butters might work too!)
- 1/2 tsp pure maple syrup
Directions: Rinse and drain chickpeas. For a single serving, take 1/2 cup of cooked chickpeas and set aside in a small, but deep, bowl. In another small bowl, mix the nut butter and pure maple syrup together. Scoop the PB + maple syrup mixture onto the chickpeas and mix well with a spoon. Serve over top of a soft piece of bread, in a wrap, on a salad, or eat it alone! I tried this on toast, soft bread, and alone and I liked it best alone, then on soft bread, and didn’t care for it on toast too much. It may also be good on the right kind of salad too!
Note: I used canned chickpeas, however if you cook your own, you might want to add a pinch of sea salt as the canned chickpeas have a lovely salty flavour to them.

Those are some amazing nutritional stats, eh? It makes for a quick and healthy morning or afternoon power snack!
I came up with this simple recipe when I was making my first batch of dessert hummus– that recipe will be coming shortly too!
I know it probably seems very strange to mix peanut butter and maple syrup and throw it onto chickpeas (trust me, I thought so too!), but it honestly tastes AMAZING!
I must ask, what is nut butter not good with?
I have realized that chickpeas are very versatile and will basically adapt to any flavour that you mix it with!
I loved mixing this together and just eating the chickpeas + PB mix on its own. It tasted incredible! Try it out and let me know what you think. :biggrin:
Do you love any strange combinations of foods that you think just taste amazing but others may cringe at the thought?
