Here is another easy, healthy snack. It is made by slow roasting a can of chickpeas with some spices. The result is crunchy, nutty goodness. What a great way to include protein- and fiber-rich legumes in your diet! (and it’s a safe, tasty snack for my son with a nut allergy!).
Roasted Chick Peas
16 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoons paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cumin
Dash cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together salt and spices in a small bowl, set aside. Pat chickpeas dry and place on a baking sheet. Spray generously with non-stick spray. Collect chickpeas and place in spice bowl. Mix to evenly coat. Spread out in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Stir and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
