Need a healthy snack idea? As someone who has a salty tooth (as opposed to a sweet tooth) I’m always looking for ways to satisfy my cravings without eating fatty, greasy chips. These chickpeas did the trick, and instead of filling my gut with empty calories, I filled it with healthy fiber that helped me to feel full longer. A delicious, healthy snack that helps you feel full, and doesn’t make you want to snack more?!?! Yes please!
The best part about roasting chickpeas is that they are a blank canvas. You can season them with whatever flavors you’re craving; from spicy, to garlic, to citrus, and even sweet! Of course I went for super spicy, using this extra hot Chili Mix I had in my pantry. The Hubs and I gobbled up a whole batch in one sitting.
Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
- One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon Extra Hot Chili Mix
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.Toss chickpeas with oil and seasoning until evenly coated. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Roast, stirring occasionally, until chickpeas are golden and crunchy, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
