IMG_3224

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to greasy fried snacks, give this recipe a try! These Spicy Roasted Chickpeas are healthy and irresistible! This recipe has only 4 ingredients and was easy to make. I found the recipe on SnackGirl.com and decided that one can of beans wasn’t enough so I doubled the recipe. Although the cayenne pepper gives the roasted beans a good kick, I would like to experiment with chili power and other spices in the future.

Ingredients:                                                                    IMG_3220

2 – 15.5 oz. cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

salt (to taste)

Directions:IMG_3222

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Mix the chickpeas in a bowl with oil, salt, and cayenne pepper. Spread the chickpeas in an even layer on the baking sheet.

3. Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 15 minutes. Shake or stir the chickpeas in the pan and return the pan to the oven for another 15 minutes until brown and crunchy. Enjoy!IMG_3223
