Roasted Chickpeas

chickpeas5

I love a good snack. Especially a healthy one! This recipe is one I found while peeking through Pinterest, but like most other ones…I changed it up. You can add in whatever spices you want to make this to your liking. Here’s what you’ll need:

1 can of garbanzo/chickpeas
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Whatever spices you like- I did Italian seasoning, basil, and paprika

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

In a bigger bowl, put the drained chickpeas and olive oil and mix it up well.

Take a cookie sheep and spray it with non stick spray.

Take your spices and add them to the chickpeas. I added a lot, because I like very flavorful things. But do this to your taste.

Now, put the chickpeas on the cookie sheet. Make sure you spread them all out.

Stick in the oven for about 35 minutes- or however crispy you want them.

Eating them right out of the oven is best. But I store them in the fridge and eat them as a snack throughout the week. Lots of diets use a ton of chickpeas because of their low fat, high fiber content. About ½ a cup of these is approximately 110 calories- pending on what spices and how much oil you put on. So healthy and delish.

Enjoy!
