Microwave Chickpea Brittle

This is the quickest and easiest candy you can make. It only takes an hour to cool enough to crack into pieces.

You can use chickpeas, or any seed or nut.. pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, whatever it is you tolerate.

With the holidays approaching at lightening speeds Abby and I were flipping through her recipes trying to figure out which ones she tolerated still, which one's could be tweaked and we realized her latest round of losing foods has put a dent into our stash of recipes. Now candy on the other hand I think we might have some wiggle room. Microwave brittle is the easiest thing and a no fail kind of candy. We have a few more recipes we might try this year as well.


1 cup white sugar(Domino's organic cane sugar)
1/2 cup Lyles Golden syrup(haven't tried my homemade syrup on this yet)
1 cup salted roasted chickpeas
1 teaspoon palm shortening(Tropical Traditions or Spectrum)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract(homemade with potato vodka)
1 teaspoon baking soda


Generously grease a cookie sheet.

Combine sugar and Lyle's golden syrup in a 2 quart glass bowl and microwave on high 4 minutes.

Stir in roasted chickpea's and microwave on high 3 1/2 minutes.

Then stir in palm shortening and vanilla and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.

Stir in baking soda until light and foamy.

Pour onto cookie sheet and spread thin. (or not, I like thick pieces myself.)

Cool completely.

Break into pieces and store in airtight container.

Hey! Glad you posted that ! It was on my radar last year and I never got around to trying it. I can use dried powdered hibiscus or dried powdered turks cap powder for a color kick... I am so going to give this a go!!! :-)
