Chickpea Butter Ingredients
- ¾ cup prepared garbanzo beans
- 1 Tbsp. Extra-Virgin olive oil
- 1 ½ Tbsp. 100% pure Maple syrup
- ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. kosher salt
- 1 cup melted ghee
How to Make Garbanzo Bean Butter
- Preheat oven to 350° and place rack in the middle of the oven.
- Place drained and shelled chickpea beans (garbanzos) on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with the oil. Using a wooden spoon gently stir, or you can gently shake the garbanzo beans on the sheet until the oil slightly coats the chickpeas.
- Roast the chickpeas and approximately 20 minutes, gently shaking them halfway through the roasting process. Remove from oven and let chickpeas cool on the baking sheet for approximately 15 minutes and then transfer the chickpeas to a high-powered blender, like a Vitamix. Blend until you have a fine powder.
- Add, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt and ¾ of the melted ghee, blend together until well mixed. Check for taste and consistency.
- If you wish to create a runnier spread keep adding 1 Tbsp. at a time and blend until you achieve the desired consistency.
- Depending on what you are using the Nut Free Chickpea Butter for, you can easily adjust.
