Healthy Snack: Roasted Chickpeas!

Awww YEAH!!!! I found my new favorite snack....roasted chickpeas.  Not only are they simple to make but they are filled with protein, vitamins and minerals.  Also, there's plenty of different herbs and spices you can use to suit your taste.  Salty, sweet, spicy...the combinations are endless! 


Chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Garlic powder


Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Drain and rinse chickpeas and place in medium bowl
Add olive oil, spices of your choice and mix until evenly coated
Line baking sheet with parchment paper
Transfer chickpeas to baking sheet and spread them into an even layer
Bake for 20 minutes, stir and bake for another 10-15 minutes
Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
