These delicious chickpeas and beans make a high protein snack you can munch on. You can use them as a topping on your salads, tacos, and wraps.
They are crispy bursting with flavors. I have used Chat masala, garlic powder, chili flakes, and coconut sugar to achieve a sweet and spicy taste. You can experiment with different spices and herbs the way you like. You can simply skip coconut sugar if you want some savory flavors only.
While roasting, cannellini beans will split, as the cooking time of both chickpeas and beans is different. But don’t worry they will give a very unique texture to the snack.
You can store the roasted mix in an airtight jar for up to 4 to 7 days.
