A Surprisingly Good Snack-Oven Roasted Chickpeas

A yummy dose of protein and fiber!

Gather

1 can (14 oz) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon or your spice(s) of choice
1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Step by Step

  1. Place chickpeas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.Roasted Chick Peas
  2. Bake at 450 F for 30 minutes. (That's right, just pop those babies in the oven naked! When you get them out, they are even great before you season them!)Roasted Chick Peas
  3. Transfer chickpeas to a bowl and mix thoroughly with the rest of the ingredients.Roasted Chick Peas
  4. Enjoy hot, or bring to room temperature. I recommend eating same day, because they don't store well.
  5. I encourage you to eat the chickpeas hot by the handful and maybe share them with the rest of your family!
    Try other seasonings as well. My guess is that some chipotle chili powder and brown sugar might be good. To cut back on the sodium, use a salt free season salt, or nothing at all!
    NOTES: Only make one can at a time (I made 2). Make sure to roast them all the way, maybe longer than the recommended time, to make sure they are crunchy. Best eaten the first day. They were soggy and kinda pasty the next day after being in a tupperware bowl.

    Ok stupid question…are chick-peas a veggie? Maybe I could handle eating them this way.

      Hi Ann,
      They are actually a legume, and are a very good source of protein.

      Best,
