  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the breadcrumbs on top. Place in the oven at 400F for about 2 minutes until golden-brown (with fries if they are in the oven). Set aside.
  • In a small pan, heat some water and sauté the onion for about 3 minutes. Set aside. Then place the oats into your food processor or blender and process into a fine flour. Add the rest of the ingredients (including the cooked onion) and pulse until you get a crumbly mixture.
  • Divide the chickpea mixture into 14 equal portions and form each portion into a nugget. Coat with some almond milk and roll in the baked panko bread crumbs.
  • Place on a new sheet of parchment paper and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • These nuggets are delicious tossed in hot sauce, plum sauce, sriracha etc.
