**Full Disclosure: I received a package of Stubb’s BBQ sauce in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Summer is in full swing here and my kids are done with our usual snacks. In order to change things up, I added garbanzo beans to my grocery list. James & Colin were a little confused by it because they were convinced that garbanzo beans aren’t a snack food.
James wasn’t interested in helping me make the snack, but Colin was a willing helper. I opened the cans and dealt with the oven but Colin did everything else on his own. He dumped the beans in a bowl, measured the Stubb’s BBQ sauce, gently mixed everything together and poured the beans on the baking sheet.
- 2 cans Garbanzo Beans
- ½ cup Stubb's BBQ Sauce, any flavor (we used Sticky Sweet)
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Drain garbanzo beans.
- Gently coat the beans with ½ cup BBQ sauce.
- Lay them out in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until dry.
While my boys weren’t completely sure about trying them, they did and the BBQ Chick Peas were a big hit! Even my husband, not a fan of garbanzo beans, thought they were fantastic!
Do you like chick peas? Would you eat these?
