Easy Roasted Chickpeas

Often as I’m walking the aisles of the grocery store, I tell myself I’m going to be a good mom and buy only healthy snacks that are less processed and loaded with good nutrients. This usually lasts until I see the prices of some of these snacks. Six dollars for a handful of roasted chickpeas? No thank you! I’ve got a lot of mouths to feed, so that’s not a great option.

I decided to try making my own one day, and over a few attempts, managed to come up with a pretty tasty homemade version!

Easy Roasted Chickpeas

1 can chickpeas, drained

1 tbsp olive oil

1 1/4 tsp seasoning salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1/4 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp flour

Drain your canned chickpeas, and place them in a medium bowl. Use a paper towel or tea towel to dry them a bit. This action will usually remove the skin of the chickpeas. You can discard those or leave them, whatever you prefer. I personally like the way the skins crisp up.

Next, drizzle the olive oil over the chickpeas.

In a separate bowl, mix all of the spices, except the flour, and sprinkle that in too. I usually do a tsp at a time, so as not to over season. You may not need all of the spice mixture for your taste.

Using your hands or a spoon, toss until evenly coated.

Sprinkle the flour over top, and mix again.

Lay the coated chickpeas on a cookie sheet, and toast at 375 degrees for approximately 40 minutes.

If you give this a try, be sure to let me know your thoughts, and thanks for stopping by!
