    Sure are, as long as no oil is used.

    Also, if you're following the true SW path, you should syn them if eaten as an inbetween snack & not part of a meal.

    Chickpeas are free whenever you have them.

    However in some aspects they are not. Such as used in a cake as a replacement to flour. Also roasting them to a hard type snack would most likely change their satiety making them easy to over consume and less filling.

    It is at times like this that slimming world state we should syn these foods when used in this way. This is to protect our losses.

    Although slimming world is not a calorie controlled diet, at the end of the day it does come down to the fact that if we eat over the calories our body physically needs in a day we won't lose weight and may even gain.

    Slimming world cleverly designed their plan so that we dont have to weigh foods or count calories. By giving us a list of low fat but filling free foods and advising a 1/3 superfree.

    However if you find you are still losing weight by eating those kind of snacks, like cous cous cake, chick pea cake, SW crisps (made from lasagna sheets/potatoes) etc then carry on. But you know those are the areas to stop if your weight loss stops.

    It is worth bearing in mind for those that can eat those things and still lose weight that it is probably because you are still under your daily recommended calorie intake. However if you are having huge portions at meals and then snacking excessively on these kinds of snacks as well with no restraint then the likelihood is you will be way over the calories you burn, so it should come as no surprise to find weight not coming off or seeing a small gain on those scales.

    I hope that explains it all for you :)
