Dried Garbanzo Beans, Who Knew?

A friend of mine sent me this link last summer when my 12 year old needed a healthy snack recipe for her   4-H project.
It's really good!! 
She got a blue ribbon, missing the mark of a purple ribbon because the judge thought they should have been baked a bit longer to crisp them even more.
And, this batch would have gotten a blue ribbon because I probably baked them a tad too long

However, both attempts were good.  

For the record, I doubled the recipe. I always think while you're at it you should make more.  I'm glad I did.

I don't think it's hard to get it right.  Just don't run off to pick up kids while they are still in the oven, thinking that you can just turn the heat down and let them bake another 25 minutes.

I'm a salt fiend and these really are still good with no salt.  Which is of course the point of the recipe.
I don't know who Dr. Oz is but I thank him and my friend for the recipe.

Maybe this snack will counter the meringue hearts I made yesterday. :)


  1. I love garbanzo beans but have never had them dried. Great idea for a good snack.

    Thanks for sharing...

  2. this sounds terrific! I'll try it this weekend...

  3. yum!
    Looks so easy too.
    Can't wait to try.
    Woolie Hugs

  4. Your 4-H judge sounds a little harsh to me :)
    Looks like a great recipe - falafel uses chickpeas - so I imagine this is delicious and similar in taste

    p.s. Dr. Oz is a friend of Oprah's - another person who wasn't famous until he was on her show several times - and now he's a celebrity in his own right - well known for his common sense approach to healthful living

  5. How are these on your teeth? As hard as Corn nuts? Or not so bad...?


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
