BRB, stuffing our faces

Let's be real: Breakfast cereal, especially a one Cinnamon Toast Crunch, is delightful. It's also, unfortunately, not so great for you. That's why we were so psyched to discover that a certain legume can, when prepared correctly, taste reeeally similar to the sugary treat. The veg in question: the humble chickpea. Here's the scoop.

What you need: One can of chickpeas, one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of honey and, of course, a healthy sprinkling of cinnamon.

What you do: Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then dry them on a paper towel. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and top a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the chickpeas on the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 45 minutes, or until crispy. While they're still warm, toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, honey and cinnamon to taste. Spread back onto the baking sheet and cook for another 10 minutes or so until caramelized.

The result? A crispy, golden bowl of goodness that you don't have to feel bad about eating in its entirety. Magic.
