The healthiest salty snack in the world. Protein packed, low fat, low carb chickpea chips.

The blog has had a little face lift. Yay! I know… “Again?” you are probably thinking. But the thing is I am currently in a mood where I want to change a lot of things. Clean up. Declutter. Do you know that feeling? Sometimes I just feel like I’ve gotten too many things around me. Too much to look at. So this week I’ve decluttered my bathroom and my closet and parts of my room. So obviously the blog had to get a make over too. I had to make it simpler – just like my room.

But the makeover is nothing compared to what plans I have for the blog. Because finally, finally, FINALLY I think I’ve found a new name. I seriously want to throw up every time I hear “The Smoothie Lover”. I don’t know what the h*ll I was thinking of when I chose it. Anyway, I might or might not have spend the last two hours trying to figure out how to change the domain but still have the old one, which then redirects over to the new domain. I still haven’t figured it out and I am so tired from reading and reading, so I’ll just keep this post nice and short.

HELP! Does anyone know how to change the domain name without losing all of your links to your blog? Like how to redirect from your old domain to your new. Thank you so much!

Jubiii, bloggen har fået en makeover igen. Jeg ved det… “Nu igen”, tænker du nok. Sagen er at jeg for tiden har brug for at rydde op i alt. Rydde ud. Smide væk. Simplificere. I den her uge har både mit skab (som stadig har for mange ting), mit badeværelse og dele af mit værelse været udsat for den helt store forårsrengøring. Og stadig synes jeg, der er for meget. Så bloggen skulle også have en tur. Mere simpel tak!

Men det her lillle ansigtsløft er kun starten. For endelig, endelig, ENDELIG har jeg fundet et nyt navn til bloggen. Jeg er seriæst ved at brække mig hver gang jeg hører ordene “The Smoothie Lover”. Hvad sytten tænkte jeg lige på, da jeg valgte det? Anyway, jeg er nu ved at finde ud af hvordan man lige skifter domænenavn. Vel og mærke på en sådan måde, at man ikke mister det gamle. Altså sådan at man automatisk bliver dirigeret over på det nye domæne, hvis man indtaster det gamle. Så jeg ikke mister alle mine gamle links. Det er noget så svært. Jeg har nu brugt de sidste to timer på at søge rundt, men helt uden nytte desærre. Så…

HJÆLP! Hvis nogen ved, hvordan man skifter domænenavn uden at miste trafik (altså så man bare bliver dirigeret over på den nye, hvis man klikker på et link, der fører til det gamle domæne), så tager jeg imod enhver form for hjælp med kyshånd. Tak!

These snacks are actually not my invention, but they are so good they deserve to be shared with the world. At home we call them “Mette-snacks” after my lovely aunt Mette. Because it is she who have told me how to make these ingenious healthy, protein packed, low fat, low carb “chips”. (Actually she didn’t invent them either – one of her colleagues did, so shout out to my aunt’s colleague who has made the best savory snack ever). I’ve been wanting to share the recipe (which btw is super simple) for a while (actually a year, but shhh…) and I am so happy to finally introduce you to

The Healthiest Salty Snack in The World


De her skønne kikærtesnacks er faktisk ikke min opfindelse, men de er så skønne og fortjener virkelig at blive delt med verden. Herhjemme hedder de “Mette-snacks” efter min søde moster, for det er nemlig hende, der har lært mig at lave disse geniale, sunde, protein-pakkede, fedt fattige og kulhydrat fattige “chips”. (Faktisk er det heller ikke hendes opfindelse – en af hendes kollegaer fandt på dem, så shout out til min mosters kollega for at have lavet de mest fantastiske snacks i verden). Jeg har villet dele den her opskrift (som er super simpel) rigtig længe (faktisk et år, men shh…), så jeg er glad for endelig at kunne introducere jer til 

Den sundeste salte snack i verden


Chickpea Snacks

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes

Yield: 2 cups

The healthiest salty snack in the world. Protein packed, low fat, low carb chickpea chips.


  • 500 g. (approx 2 cups) dried chickpeas*
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. coarse salt


  1. The day before, cover the chickpeas with water and let them soak over night.
  2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas and cook them by boiling them in plenty of water according to the package. Let cool down slightly.
  3. Preheat oven to 160°C / 320°F. Place the chicpeas in a plastic bag. Add the oil and salt to the back, make a knot and mix very well to make sure the oil is evenly contributed.
  4. Place the chickpeas on a baking sheet and bake for 1 1/2 hour stirring from time to time. Check the chickpeas after one hour. Take one chickpea out and place it on the counter to cool down. Then taste for "crispy-ness". They should be completely crispy, but not burned.


* I haven't tried using canned yet, but I think canned chickpeas work fine too. ** I am going to try using sprouted chickpeas too soon.

    I was also thinking the same about the blog but the part of reading all the technical detais makes me …that I just will leave it like this until I find someone who could do it for me :)
    The recipe is lovely, we use to make it home quite often, i also love to put different spices every time I make it!

    I had this kind of chickpeas on a holiday in Italy a long time ago and loved them. Thanks for reminding me!

  3. I totally know what you mean about decluttering – we threw out/gave away so much stuff during the move and I feel so much lighter! It’s a great thing to do I think, and good to be able to detach from material possessions.
    And I love the look of the new site! And I cant wait to hear your new name, how exciting! Im not much help on the redirection though, perhaps a plugin would be the best bet though? Not sure if this one does everything you need it too… https://wordpress.org/plugins/redirection/

    Hi Josefine,
    I feel the same urge to reorganize a lot every fall, my blog would be a candidate for this, too… But first I need to mentally get back from my year abroad – where i ate exactly that snack quite often. In fact, you can find roasted chickpeas at nearly every corner in Morocco.
    Can’t wait for your new blog name!

  5. I love snacking on chickpeas, Josefine! I haven’t tried sprouted ones though, you’ve got me thinking I should!! xo

  6. Yes, chickpeas are the best and healthiest snacks ever!!!
    I perfectly get what you mean about decluttering. I have the urge to do it about once a month: sometimes at home, sometimes between my emails, other times with the blog.
    I love this new simpler design and I am excited about your new blog name (and also sad a bit at the same time, I loved The Smoothie Lover)…

    Hi! Where do you buy your dried chickpeas? I can’t find any and would love to try your recipe!! Thanks!

    • Hi Kassie. I actually buy them at a regular grocery store. But if you can’t get them there try a Middle eastern grocery store. Or an Indian :) Otherwise I am sure you can get them at well assorted health food stores. Hope you’ll find them!

    Hi Josephine, I’ve just started my own website and I noticed an option to redirect from one URL to another (called 301 Redirect, in settings under SEO). I hope this is what you were looking for?
    Anyway, I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I absolutely love it, the gorgeous food, the beautiful photography, and your lovely writing!
    If you get a chance, could you check out my site? (http://www.blackandwhiteandgreenallover.com/)
    Thank you!
