Few things in this world can compare to the humble, but oh-so lovely slice of bread.
Sandwiches, toast, sliders, and bread… It’s BREAD for goodness sake. Don’t tell me you don’t love it because we both know deep inside that’s just. Not. True.
But of course. If something’s that convenient and tasty, by the laws of Murphy which override even the laws of physics, it can’t be too healthy. Sigh. It’s not that it’s horribly bad for you, and sure, whole wheat is ok… But at the end of the day, it’s processed, and your body registers it essentially like sugar.
Now ok, you might be thinking, what the heck, who cares? Let me move on with my life and let me toast my life away in peace.
Well you know me. Come on, I think you know where this is going. Drumroll,
Fit teen foodie bread.
And for sliders and sandwiches, good God I actually like it better than bread. Huh?!
Ok, let’s be real here. It’s not exactly the same, but for convenient mini sliders, snacks, and maybe even mock avo-toast this “bread” kicks butt. You can make it ahead of time, and it’ll be calling out your name in the fridge all day to eat it. And at two ingredients,
Wait up. I said two. Yep.
You can have warm, flavorful, and filling amazingness. And the nutrition is sort of out of this world with crazy good protein, fiber, and good carbs and fat.
Here we go,
Fit Foodie Bread
-1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
-(seasoning: salt/pepper to taste, if you like, dry herbs)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Either mash with a fork or blend for smoother consistency the chickpeas, and then work in the eggs and seasoning until it is thoroughly combined.
Pour your mixture either into cupcake/muffin molds or a rectangular baking pan, depending on the amount and your liking of shape. (You can halve the recipe for one serving or double/triple it for more). It will rise a bit, so make sure you don’t fill it up all the way.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Let it rest a bit, and enjoy!
To get you excited about the world of possibility, slice that bread in half, lather on some gorgeous avo “butter”, smack on some smoked salmon, and boom. Classy. Delicious. Easy. Healthy. Goals.
I aspire to be goals. I aspire to be fit teen foodie salmon sliders.
