Crispy Chickpea Snacks

Warning: this snack is highly addictive. I found myself eating an entire can of chickpeas in one sitting! The beauty of this snack is how versatile it is. It's delicious on its own, but also I incorporate it into many of my other recipes. I add it to salads, breakfast bowls, you name it. So once my luteal phase rolls around, I always have these ready to go.

Since this recipe is pretty much entirely chickpeas, it is perfect for the luteal phase. During the luteal phase, you want to focus on fiber-rich foods to support the large intestine in flushing out excess estrogen and consume nutrient-dense food as your body's metabolism naturally speeds up.

Chickpeas are great for luteal because they are high in fiber which helps flush out excess estrogen, but also high in vitamin B6 which aids progesterone production. It's also a good source of plant-based protein - and protein helps stabilize blood sugar which can help balance your mood as you go into your menstrual phase.


Crispy Chickpea Snacks

Serves: 4 Active Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes



  • 1 can chickpeas

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp chili powder


1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.

2. Start by draining, rinsing, and drying your chickpeas. In the drying process, the skin of the chickpeas will come off - if you have the patience, remove them, but it's not necessary. Move the dried chickpeas into a medium mixing bowl and add olive oil, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Mix together and then pour onto a baking sheet.

3. Bake for 30 minutes!
