Two Healthy, Delicious & Allergen-Free Snacks Made With The Amazing Chickpea @AmazingChickpea
Healthy, Delicious & Allergen-Free Snacks Made with The Amazing Chickpea!
If you are looking for healthy, delicious, and allergen-free snacks you’ve come to the right place. I was recently contacted by The Amazing Chickpea asking if I would share two recipes with you. I know that you enjoy recipes as much as I do so of course I agreed. I use The Amazing Chickpea and I absolutely love it! Since I already had some at home I went ahead and tried out both recipes. I wasn’t surprised at how good they are, since The Amazing Chickpea tastes great. That’s when I knew I just had to share them with you.
So without further ado, here are two recipes for healthy, delicious, and allergen-free snacks!
Apple Flax Smoothie
2 small apples
1 tablespoon creamy The Amazing Chickpea butter
1 tablespoon flax seed
1 frozen banana, chopped
1 cup milk of choice
Core apples and cut into chunks for easier blending. Blend until smooth.
Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
Frozen Banana Pops
Frozen Banana Pops are the perfect snack to cool you down on a warm summer day, and a great healthy alternative to ice cream treats! Your kids will love these.
1 cup Amazing Chickpea Butter (creamy)
1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup coconut oil
½ tsp vanilla extract
Start by peeling and cutting the bananas into thick chunks (the thickness helps the bananas hold up to the chickpea butter).
Using a knife spread the chickpea butter onto top of a banana chunk then add another piece on top to make a sandwich.
Place a toothpick into each sandwich then transfer to freezer where they will need to sit for an hour.
While you are waiting for the pops to freeze start making the chocolate sauce over the stove. The sauce will require a double broiler system which you can create by filling a pot halfway with water and placing a glass mixing bowl over the top (make sure it fits snug so the chocolate melts evenly).
Microwave the coconut oil until it becomes a clear liquid which can be added to broiler along with chocolate chips.
As the water boils stir the chocolate mixture until melted.
Once completely melted, add the vanilla and mix again.
After the banana pops have been in the freezer for an hour, take them out and cover them in chocolate sauce then place them on cookie sheet.
The pops are now ready for the last freezing stage which takes a couple hours, but don’t worry it’s worth the wait! These pops are the perfect healthy sweet treat during any heat wave.

I haven’t heard of chickpea butter, but I looked it up and it is a good substitute for peanut butter for sure. I have to pick up some when I do my next Amazon order. Thanks for the recipes.
Wow, the chickpea really is amazing! I will definitely be trying these, thank you so much for sharing. 🙂
I’ve eaten a few things made of chickpeas, but I’ve never heard of chickpea butter. I’ve liked the chickpea things I’ve had so far, so I’d guess I’d like this too, but I’ve never noticed it in any stores. I guess I’ll have to look for it. I’m always looking for things that are healthy, but they have to taste good. I think the food industry has gotten much better at combining those two things, so I’m much more open to trying new things like this.
