Kristin's Healthy Chickpea Snack by ACGC


This is a healthy recipe because it is a great replacement for alternative snacks, like chips, cookies, or movie theater popcorn.


15-ounce can organic garbanzo beans 1/2 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon honey 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat silicone mat.
2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a colander. Place them on a towel to dry off.
3. Spread chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until crispy. Test one, and if it's still soft, bake for longer.
4. While the chickpeas are still hot, toss them in a bowl with the oil, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Enjoy as is, or for a caramelized effect, place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes or so.
5. Store leftover chickpeas in an airtight container.
