Gluten Free Healthy Snack | Roasted Chickpeas

Do you ever have those cravings where you are just dying for something crunchy? Of course, that always leads to chips which are not always the best option, especially if you are trying to maintain clean eating habits. In my quest for a crunchy satisfying snack, I decided to make roasted chickpeas. There are loads of recipes, but I decided to add my own twist.

First, preheat your oven to 425F. Then assemble and mix well:
Roasted Chickpea Recipe
  • One can of chickpeas (strained and rinsed) 
  • 1 tsp-ish extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1-2 tsp chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Once mixed, put on greased baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes. Stir and bake another 15-20, keeping an eye on to ensure they don't burn. If they do (I totally burnt mine), no worries they still taste delicious! I love this recipe because it requires little added fat, just ensure the chickpeas are not dry when mixing. 

Then enjoy as needed! They store nice for a few days in an airtight container once cooled.
