Chickpea Chocolate

School lunches are back in action and getting your kids to eat healthy snacks and lunches that don’t require heating up and can be prepared in the rush of the morning routine can be a challenge. Kids need to love their lunches since Mom or Dad can’t be there to insist on them eating their veggies.

Here is a healthy, school friendly twist on the classic peanut butter and jelly. My kids also like to dip apple slices in it  Since 90% of this is chickpeas it’s loaded with protein, iron, potassium, fibre and vitamin B6!
