Cinnamon Sugar Rattles

Audrey is not a big eater even when she does like something. On days I am uncertain of the outcome I usually give her an even smaller portion until I know what she thinks. That means a lot of her meals are snack sized for regular children. For this reason I tend to make her snacks for lunch. This is one of those meals. The Sneaky Chef has a lot of great snack ideas but one really caught my eye.

Cinnamon Sugar Rattle Snacks

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and add chickpeas. Toss until well coated. Spread on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 55 to 60 minutes, shaking the sheet and mixing occasionally until the chickpeas are crisp and rattle on the pan.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Measure and add ingredients
  2. Mix chickpeas with cinnamon sugar
  3. Place on cookie sheet
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Place in oven
Audrey had a lot of fun shaking those chickpeas. She thought that was great. As soon as these cooled off I gave them to the girls with lunch but they were a little bland. I added a bit more cinnamon sugar and they tasted fine and were consumed then. I would recommend a little more than the recipe calls for. Remember to enter the Curious Chef Pizza Kit giveaway.
