Chickpea Trail Mix

This is a great savoury snack to break the more common sweet recovery food options. Chickpeas are a great substitute to help make your recovery nuts go further and they are still a great source of protein but much much cheaper. This trail mix also tastes great sprinkled on top of your favourite salad.


1 x 400g can no added-salt chickpeas, rinsed and drained

2 teaspoons sweet paprika

2 teaspoons cumin

2 teaspoons curry powder

1/3 cup almonds

1/3 cup cashews

¼ cup pepitas

¼ cup dried cranberries, raisins or sultanas (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 150 C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine chickpeas and spices in a large bowl; mix well to evenly coat the chickpeas.
  2. Spread spiced chickpeas onto prepared baking tray in an even layer. Roast in the oven for 45-50 minutes or until crunchy and golden.
  3. Add almonds and cashews to tray and roast for 5 more minutes. Remove tray from oven and leave to cool.
  4. Stir pepitas and dried fruit (if using) through roast chickpeas and serve.
