New favorite snack: Roasted Chick Peas

I should warn you first…these are super addictive, and healthy but are NOT calorie-free, so be prepared to have to limit your intake on this amazingly crispy, salty and fiber/protein heavy snack. What are they? It’s simply roasted garbanzo beans (chick peas).

What you need:
1 can of garbanzo beans
Cooking spray
Favorite spices (I used sea salt and pepper…so good)

What to do:
1.       Preheat oven to 400°
2.       Drain, rinse and dry garbanzo beans
3.       Put beans in a bag or bowl, give a couple sprays with cooking spray and add your spices
4.       Shake it, stir it, whatever…just make sure the beans are evenly coated with spray/spices
5.       Put foil down on a cookie sheet, spread garbanzo beans in a single layer and pop in the oven for 45 mins
6.       Enjoy (they come out hot J )
