INGREDIENTSSpicy-Roasted-Chickpeas-8-1024x682
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
