Peanut Butter Chickpeas

Peanut Butter Chickpeas

You guys know me by now, I am a fan of simplicity. This meal is made without any stress and an easy roast & throw it all together.

Peanut butter and chickpeas go so well together and is highly addictive if you ask me.

This recipe calls for sweet potatoes but you could eat those chickpeas with quinoa, millet, potatoes or whatever you want as well. You should definitely use either homemade or organic peanut butter just because the high amount of salt is not good for you and the less ingredients, the less processed foods, the better for you.

I used coconut oil to oven roast the chickpeas but olive oil works too.
