Snack time is the best time if we do say so ourselves! The right snack gives you a boost of energy and helps keep you feeling full so that you can focus on the tasks at hand, not on a rumbly tummy. At Biena Snacks, we designed our Roasted Chickpea Snacks, Chickpea Puffs, and Keto Puffs to be delicious and healthy, offering 5-6g of plant protein per serving. Now, you can reach for a snack you feel good about rather than something full of empty calories.

Add to trail mix

Whether you’re enjoying outdoor activities, are on the go, or want a healthy and delicious snack at home, trail mix is a great option. The best part is you can make it however you want, including how healthy you want. Try mixing sweet and salty ingredients plus ingredients that offer protein and fiber to keep you satiated. Biena Chickpea Snacks, Chickpea Puffs, and Keto Puffs provide a savory flavor and a good amount of protein. Our Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks offer a touch of sweetness. Complete your trail mix with healthy ingredients like almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and raisins.


Use as a soup topping.

You already know soup makes a great dinner item, but a cup of soup is also a filling snack option. Want to make the soup even better? Top it with Chickpea Snacks for an added crunch! Doing so also provides more flavor, protein, and fiber to your snack, helping you feel fuller, longer.


Add some crunch to your yogurt.

Yogurt is often a go-to snack, but it can be loaded with sugar. When opting for yogurt, choose plain yogurt and dress it up with tasty toppings, such as fresh fruit, cocoa powder, and a drizzle of honey. Top it all off with Biena Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks for a sweet and salty addition and a mix of textures.


Mix Chickpea Snacks and Puffs together

Take it a step further and incorporate Chickpea Snacks, Chickpea Puffs, and Keto Puffs for various tastes and textures and a range of health benefits.


Elevate your avocado toast

While often eaten as a breakfast item, avocado toast also makes a great snack, providing several nutrients plus fiber and healthy fats. The next time you make avocado toast, top it with roasted Chickpea Snacks for extra flavor and texture. Are you feeling bold? Choose the habanero flavor for a spicy kick.


Add some crunch to your peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Remember the days you’d put potato chips in your peanut butter and jelly sandwich? It sounded weird, but it worked! The chips added a nice crunch to balance out the otherwise smooth sandwich and a salty, savory flavor to balance out the sweet. Try our take on this old-school snack by adding Sea Salt or Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks to your PB&J. It adds a layer of crunch plus protein and fiber to take your sandwich to the next level.



Sprinkle on sliced fruit

Fruit is a great snack that provides beneficial nutrients and satisfies your sweet tooth. Want to make it even better? Try slicing a banana or apple and spreading peanut butter or almond butter on top. Add a dash of cinnamon for extra flavor and top with Honey Roasted Chickpea snacks to create a snack that has a mix of flavors, textures, and plenty of health benefits.


Use as a crunchy coating for eggplant slices.

Craving chicken nuggets? Before hitting the drive-through, try this instead. Slice eggplant into strips, dip into an egg wash, coat with crushed Chickpea Snacks, and bake. It’s like a healthier version of chicken tenders! Get the full recipe here.


Add to your favorite salad.

The best part of a salad is the toppings. The next time you make a salad, whether that’s a Cobb salad, Caesar salad, fruit-topped salad, or something else, try adding our roasted Chickpea Snacks to enhance the flavor and health benefits! Following the keto diet? Use our Sea Salt Keto Puffs in place of croutons. 


Decorate a smoothie bowl

Smoothie bowls might be some of the most aesthetically pleasing snacks around. From the smoothie itself to the fresh fruit toppings and more, it’s a colorful, nutrient-filled snack. Next time, try adding Honey Roasted Chickpea Snacks as a topping for a pop of salty-yet-sweet flavor and extra protein and fiber.


Include in a snack plate

What’s better than one snack? A plate full of snacks! A snack plate is a great way to combine your favorite foods for a tasty, healthy, filling snack. Whether you’re making a veggie tray, cheese plate, or charcuterie board, make sure our Chickpea Snacks or Chickpea Puffs are included! It’s an easy way to add flavor, crunch, protein, and fiber to your plate.
