Couldn’t wait to try this one, because both my kids love chickpeas as a snack.  The fact that they are crunchy and salty is a winner, just like chips but full of fibre and protein!

I got this one from the Popsugar website, but instead of the spice mixture I added some garlic powder, and they turned out awesome.

Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients

1 15-ounce can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons of spice mixture (a curry, Morrocan, or Mexican spice mixture works well)

Directions

Make sure the chickpeas are completely dry after draining and rinsing them.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander. Pat dry.
  3. Toss chickpeas in a medium-sized bowl with olive oil, sea salt, and spices.
  4. Arrange chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until crispy. While baking, shake pan or stir chickpeas to avoid burning.
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  7. If desired, sprinkle and toss with more spices.
