I put this out as my cocktail appetizer when I have people over. And then leftovers go in a plastic bag in my purse; I especially like to take these with me on the plane when I travel for a little hit of satisfying protein. These are tastier than plain nuts and I know exactly what is in this mix

crispy chickpeas

Calories 153 / Protein 7g / Carbohydrates 23g / Dietary Fiber 8g / Sugar 0g / Total Fat 6g / Saturated Fat 1g / Sodium 751mg
These are super-fun. The first time I had this very Mediterranean snack, the chickpeas took the place of croutons in a salad. I thought they were brilliant—until I realized that they were deep-fried! So I tinkered with the idea at home to come up with a recipe in which they’re baked instead; the perfect combination of olive oil and smoked salt does the trick. These are super-crunchy and remind me of corn nuts, which I adored as a child. 


  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons smoked sea salt


    1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350ºF.
    2. Spray a baking sheet with oil preparation spray.
    3. Put the chickpeas on a clean room towel or many sheets of towel and dry completely.
    4. In a medium bowl, toss the chickpeas with olive oil to coat.
    5. Sprinkle with the smoked salt and toss again.
    6. Transfer in an even layer to the prepared baking sheet.
    7. Bake, shaking the pan halfway through the baking time, till the
    8. chickpeas ar firm, fifty minutes to one hour.
    9. Let cool for at least 1 hour; the chickpeas will become crunchier as they cool.
    10. These are best eaten within 1 day.

Everybody loves granola bars, but a lot of time we buy expensive sugary ones at the grocery store and throw them in our bag without thinking. This is a homemade take. I love the smell of these as they’re baking. Egg whites and dried fruit make them chewy—that’s my favorite thing about good granola bars.

  • 3 large egg whites, at room temperature

  3. Line the bottom and sides of the baking dish with parchment paper.
  4. Spray the parchment paper with vegetable oil cooking spray, too.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, oil, egg whites, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flaxseed, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  7. Pour the oat mixture into the honey mixture and stir until the ingredients are coated.

These are just amazing. They crackle and then melt in your mouth. You need very thin slices of apple; I recommend buying an inexpensive Japanese mandoline for the job. The slices are baked and then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. I use super-tart apples, such as Granny Smiths, which are available year-round. 


  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2(6- to 7-ounce) tart apples, such as Granny Smith


  1. Position racks at the top and bottom of the oven and preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. Line 2 large (12 × 18-inch) baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly coat the parchment with vegetable oil cooking spray.
  3. Stir the sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl until blended.
  4. Stand each apple upright on a cutting board. Cut ¼ inch vertically off the right and left sides of each apple.
  5. Set a mandoline for cutting 1⁄16-inch-thick slices.
  6. Place 1 apple, a cut side down, on the mandoline.
  7. Using the guard, carefully cut slices until you reach the core.
  8. Turn the apple over and cut slices off the remaining side until you reach the core again.
  9. Arrange the apple slices in a single layer (without overlapping) on a prepared baking sheet.
  10. Repeat with the second apple.
  11. Sprinkle the apple slices generously with the cinnamon sugar.
  12. Bake the apple slices for 30 minutes.
  13. Reverse the sheets from top to bottom in the oven and also rotate them from back to front.
  14. Bake until the slices curl at the edges, feel crisp or almost crisp, and are deep golden, 10 to 15 minutes longer.
  15. Pull the parchment and apple slices onto a counter and let cool completely, 20 to 30 minutes.
  16. The chips will crisp more as they cool.

This is one of our favorite afternoon/after-school snacks at home, Jade included. I often put this out as an appetizer with drinks when friends are coming over for dinner. In fact, this bright green dip is so versatile that I’ll also serve it as a side to a simple piece of grilled fish. Instead of buying pita chips, which are expensive and can be loaded with fat and other additives, you can make your own at home. serves 6
