Roasted Chickpeas

Taco Seasoned Roasted Chickpeas

As i’ve mentioned previously in my roasted chickpea post, most people snack on chips but roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite foods to snack on – and they’re healthy! I know that sounds crazy but i’ve made these for a few of my friends and they’re already hooked! Don’t get me wrong I definitely snack on other goodies.

What’s another great thing about this recipe besides the fact it’s packed with protein and flavor? The fact that it takes about 3 minutes to prepare, duh! You can also make this recipe both sweet and savory. I’ve made this with cinnamon and sugar, honey, and a few other delicious ways! Cutting back on carbs, toss these chickpeas in your salad rather than adding croutons. You can bake just short enough to obtain a little crunch or longer for an extra crispy bite.
