Snacky Black Beans, part II


I feel like I owe you all an apology.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted this recipe for some black beans made for snackin.


And then I got a few emails saying that you tried them…and they didn’t turn out like you imagined. I really (really, really) should have mentioned that they are very hard. Not totally cooked. Very chewy


When I made the first (hard) batch, I didn’t give them a second thought because my girl loved them. She threw them back like skittles. Until I got a few emails and realized they were a little weird. (But so are my girl’s tastebuds. She likes raw garlic and blue cheese, for heaven sakes.)


Nevertheless, I feel like I led you astray. So I made you some more snacky black beans. A little (a lot) softer. A little crispier. A little more normal.

And every bit as loved by this little face.


Snacky Black Beans, part II

  • 1 can (or 1 1/3 C cooked) black beans
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 t garlic salt
  • 1 t chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Drain and rinse the beans. Then spread them out on a paper towel and let them dry for about an hour. Transfer them to a cookie sheet, toss with the oil and spices.

Roast the beans for 15 – 20 minutes, flipping half way through the time. Let cool, and enjoy!

    maybe it’s okay that I waited until this post and hadn’t tried these yet. I was actually thinking they would make a great, healthy snack to stuff in my pockets while snowboarding. Which, by the way, you need to join us for one weekend!

    As a former blonde baby myself, I am totally digging her blonde hair!!

    I like that you went back and fixed this up, that’s super thoughtful. I’m with Megan above in that they looked awesome the first time!

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

    Holy kamoly … these pics of baby A are an incredibly accurate reflection of your post … The first one’s like “uhhh, did I do something wrong” but then she’s like “Ta-daaaaa! Fixed it. Boom.”

    Love it.

    Thanks for the points you have contributed here. Another thing I would like to express is that laptop or computer memory needs generally go up along with other breakthroughs in the technological know-how. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there is certainly usually a related increase in the shape demands of both the laptop or computer memory as well as hard drive room. This is because the software program operated through these processor chips will inevitably boost in power to make new technological know-how.
