Healthy Snacks: Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

Healthy Snacks: Oven-Roasted Chickpeas by The Sweet Spot BlogI’ve been on the lookout for tasty, healthy snacks this summer.  For me, these snacks also need to be easy to make and portable.  That’s just how I roll these days!  I came across several recipes for oven-roasted chickpeas and decided to give them a try.

I love chickpeas  (or garbanzo beans) as an ingredient on a salad, in hummus, etc.  And they are a great source of protein, which I am always conscious of as a vegetarian.  I was excited to try them roasted.  These were very tasty and got the thumbs up from Bear and even Baby E!  She tried a few and kept saying, ‘More!  More!”  That’s my girl…..

Oven-Roasted Chickpeas

1 can chickpeas
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Optional:  additional seasoning to taste  (Cajun or Mexican seasoning, or a blend of your own, see note below)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Drain and rinse chickpeas well in colander.  Spread on a towel and allow to dry thoroughly before roasting.  Toss dry chickpeas in bowl with olive oil, kosher salt and additional seasonings if desired.  Roast for 30-40 minutes to desired crispiness.

Note:  These are great roasted with just olive oil and kosher salt. If additional flavor is desired a Cajun or Mexican seasoning would be tasty, or create your own from whatever is in the pantry.  I used a mixture of cumin, paprika and garlic powder.  Don’t ask me the measurements……I have no idea. You could also add a pinch of cayenne pepper.  I skipped that ingredient because I wanted them to be toddler friendly.
