Roasted Chickpeas Sweet & Savory {Recipe}

Yesterday I shared about my "magical" shrinking pants. I want to tell you that I found great comfort and relief in knowing that the struggle really is real and I am not alone. Thank you!

Today I want to share with you one of my new favorite snacks. I have wanted to try roasted chickpeas for quite some time now but had little motivation to do so until recently. Not only are they a tasty snack, great to munch on and easy to make. They are also kid approved and don't sabotage your calorie intake either.


The star of the show is the garbanzo beans, aka chick peas. I found organic options at both Walmart and Aldi both priced under $1 a can. You also can cook your own if your prefer to go that route.


Ingredients:
1 15 oz can of Garbanzo Beans

Garlic Parmesan
1 T olive oil
1/8 C grated parmesan
1/2 t garlic powder
1/4 t sea salt
pepper to taste

Honey Cinnamon
1/2 T olive oil
1 T honey
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg
1/8 t sea salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas, lay them on towel and gently pat to dry.

3. Place chick peas on a cookie sheet using either a baking mat or parchment paper. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes

4. Toss the hot beans in the season, oil mixture coat evenly and return to cookie sheet. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the bean have reached the desired crunch. We prefer ours on the extra crunchy side so I generally bake a bit longer. 

5.  Cool and enjoy. The beans will keep in an air tight container for about 4 days!










Have you ever tried roasted chickpeas?

  15. You tried this before and get mushy ones? Or am I making that up? I tried before and they turned into tiny bullets of black death. I really need to give it another go. And perhaps watch them in the oven better =)

  18. I have never got mushy ones but I have heard of people that have. I think the trick is to roast them before adding the other stuff and to test them as you bake to make sure they are crisp enough. Black bullets of death, lololol. YIKES! Give it another try and set the timer. We LOVE the cinnamon honey ones.
