Kitchen Concoctions: Mid-Afternoon Munchies

Mid-Afternoon Munchies

Anyone who knows me, knows that I can get quite kr-A-nky (Eric is my witness….) when I don’t eat.




Afternoon snack.

Midnight snack.

These are mandatory meals.

I try to make my meals (snacks included) healthy but sometimes convenience and price play too much of a factor. (A hungry tummy needs food fast!) Fruit is always an easy and usually inexpensive snack option but as much as I love fruit sometimes I want something salty. Or crunchy. Or spicy.

In comes these crunchy chickpeas. These are sooo easy to make, and while they do take 20 minutes to cook they are so worth it. I love it when healthy snacks make a happy mouth and yummy!
