Two days ago I started 28 days of Prayer & Fasting with my church group.( I will be sharing more about this soon) We had several types of fasts to choose from and I chose The Daniel Plan it seems to be the most doable for me.  I wanted tp find healthy snacks to make and I also needed to find other sources of protein.(The Daniel Diet you must eliminate all animal products, so NO MEAT) I drink an amazing protein shake every morning but I still needed more in my diet.  So I went to one of my favorites sources of protein, beans. The family isn’t so happy about but I have stocked up on Beano!



2 15oz cans Organic Chick Peas

2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of Garlic Powder


  • Drain and rinse Chickpeas
  • Line a large bowl with paper towel and pour rinsed beans in. Allow them to dry for at least 30 minutes
  • Once they are drive put in 2 tablespoons of Olive oil, salt cayenne pepper & garlic powder. Stir make sure if chickpea is covered with spices & oil
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place chickpeas on paper. Chickpeas should not be overlapping one another, directly placed on parchment paper.
  • Place chickpeas in a cool oven and turn to 400 degrees.
  • Roast for 45 minutes. Move the chickpeas around ever 10 minutes
  • Remove and place on a cooling rack laying a towel over the chickpeas for 10 minutes.

Place in a serving bowl and serve warm.  I like to give them a little mist of olive oil & a sprinkle of salt right before I serve.
