Chickpeas take on a wonderful nutty flavour when roasted and it just seems to work well with whatever spice, herb, or sauce that you add! Roasted chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are tasty and healthy. They are high in good fibre and healthy protein, which makes them filling and keeps you fuller for longer. You can make them either sweet or savoury and here are four flavour suggestions.
Open the can of chick peas, tip into a sieve and rinse for a few seconds under running water, shake the sieve gently to shake off any excess water and tip chick peas out onto a tea towel to dry. While the chick peas are drying, pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees celsius, get out a flat oven tray and line with a sheet of baking paper or tin foil. Mix up your favourite flavour and spread out evenly on the tray, place in the oven and cook for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave to cool in the oven for extra crunch. Enjoy!

Sunshine in your day!
My beehives are located in sunny sub-tropical Brisbane, QLD and the bees enjoy copious amounts of sunshine all year round. As an organic minded beekeeper I carefully harvest the delicious liquid golden sunshine so you too can enjoy a little sunshine in your day. You can come for a fun tour of the Apiary (Brisbane based) and if you want a backyard beehive of your very own, I have bees for that too!
I found the Two Busy Bees stall at a market a little while ago and decided to give this sauce a go on a whim. It was surprisingly great. I marinated some chicken with it, deliciousness resulted. I used it as a topping sauce on my pie, amazing. My only regret is that i didn't buy more.You can tell that there are only very good quality ingredients used. I love that it is made the next suburb over from where i live. I will see you at the next market stall and I will try the other sauces you make!
Bought this as part of my mum's Mother's day gift. Arrived promptly, pretty sure she'll love it. She loves ginger, & honey. As all my other items have been delicious, can't see this being different. She may have to fight Dad for it, & if I'm lucky, I might get to try it....
I love craned honey. This stuff is the bomb! Light& creamy, delicious. It's a Hit in our house. I'd much rather buy local as well, to support Aussie producers, & our bees, so this ticks all the boxes. We will buy it again. 🤗
