Oven Roasted Chickpeas

Feel like a crunchy snack, but not in the mood to break out the chips and crackers? I love roasting chickpeas. There's a nice protein punch in this snack, and you get to customize your spices to boot!

  • 1 15.5 ounce can of chickpeas
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • Your spices of choice (about 2-3 tsp total). Sky's the limit, so be creative and pick flavors you like. I like using:
    • kosher salt and cayenne pepper
    • garlic salt
    • parsley and paprika

To Make
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Rinse chickpeas thoroughly, and allow to drain.
  3. Spread the chickpeas out in one layer on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-40 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
  4. While they're still warm, toss the chickpeas in the olive oil, then stir in your spices.
