Cinnamon Sugar Rattle Snacks Trial: Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free
My kids eat lots of snacks. I try to keep them mostly healthy, but they know that the best stuff is cookies. So, I decided to try out a recipe from The Sneaky Chef to see if I could introduce them to a new healthy snack made from chickpeas (which are apparently also known as garbanzo beans)
This recipe is naturally Joseph-safe, so I made no changes
Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans. In a bowl, combine the spices. Stir the beans into the spices to coat.
Spread on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes, stirring occasionally (They’ll stick to the pan a bit) until the chickpeas are crisp and “rattle” on the pan.

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Nut-free
- 1 15 oz can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Drain and rinse beans. In a bowl, stir sugar, cinnamon, and salt together. Add beans and toss to coat. Spread beans on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp and “rattle” on the pan.
What I Thought
An hour was way too long for these. Mine ended up quite charred. They’d have been fine at the 40 minute mark, but I thought that they needed to be cooked longer, because the recipe couldn’t possibly have been off by that much. Ah, live and learn. I was also surprised that I couldn’t really taste the cinnamon sugar coating. My daughter had one, and then refused the rest. Joseph refused them on principle. My husband ate one, made a funny face, and then put the other two he was holding back in the bowl. We won’t be making these again.
