I love to snack…. well pretty much I love to eat. I love finding creative, yet healthy snack recipes. When I was perusing Pinterest, I had found a lot of recipes for Roasted Chickpeas. I mean, I can pretty much eat hummus by the spoonful, so this recipe seemed perfect for me to try. Judgement free zone- but come on, hummus is awesome. Plus I am attempting to reduce the amount of carbs I eat, which is slowly (by slowly I mean, like, really really slowly) coming along. The little roasted chick peas are actually super tasty and they have a great texture. It is a super addicting snack, like popcorn. Seriously, I have a popcorn addiction, soon to be roasted chick peas addiction. I eat popcorn everyday. Here’s what you need to make this snack…
1 can Chickpeas
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tbsp Chili Powder
1/2 tbsp Cumin
-Preheat your oven to 400 degrees (Fahrenheit)
-Rinse your chickpeas in a strainer, and make sure that all of the clear shells are off
-Dry your chickpeas and place them on a baking tray. Make sure you have a tray that has a little bit of depth, that way your chickpeas will not roll off
-Drizzle the 2 tbsp of Olive Oil over the dried chickpeas on the baking tray. Roll the chick peas around (don’t be afraid to use your hands to roll them around)
-Sprinkle your spices onto the Chickpeas and then place them on the middle rack in the oven
-Bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Personally, I only baked them for 20 minutes. I took some out of the oven and tried it. You’ll want a somewhat crunchy outside and a warm inside.
-Let them cool a little and enjoy!
