The Good Bean Roasted Chickpea Snacks are definitely dietitian approved! They have an excellent nutrition profile and a simple ingredient list. Chickpeas, which are also known as garbanzo beans are a good source of fiber, protein, folate, manganese, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and copper. A 1 ounce serving of these roasted chickpeas has 120 calories, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein making them a balanced and satisfying snack (read more about the benefits of fiber here). Practicing portion control with these is easy because according to the Good Bean website, there are 75 chickpeas (that is a lot of chickpeas) in a 1 ounce serving!
I recommend these roasted chickpeas for:
– food allergies
– gluten intolerance
– those looking to lose weight
While the obvious way to enjoy these chickpeas is right out of the bag, it can be fun to experiment with different ways to use them. Since they come in a variety of flavors, I recommend trying various ways to enjoy them all!
Ways to use roasted chickpeas:
- Make your own trail mix. Combine your favorite roasted chickpea flavor with any combination of nuts, seeds, dried fruits and cereals
- Toss the roasted chickpeas into grain dishes. My favorite way to do this is to add the sea salt chickpeas into brown rice for an added crunch, salty flavor and more fiber and protein
- Substitute roasted chickpeas into salads instead of croutons for added fiber and protein
