Crunchy Baked Chickpeas

Drain, rinse and pat dry canned chickpeas * Spread over a foil lined baking sheet * Drizzle and evenly coat with EVOO * Sprinkle with seasoning of your choice * Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes * Store in a re-sealable container or bag at room temperature for a few days * Enjoy!

(Experiment with a pinch of cayenne pepper and chilli powder for a spicy treat, or honey and cinnamon for a sweet treat.)

Chickpeas are packed with fibre and protein which will kick hunger in the butt, keep you feeling satisfied longer and help with weight loss. They also boost your energy because they're high in iron and they lower bad cholesterol levels. There are so many health benefits to eating chickpeas, so roast them to snack on, add them to salads and soups, and make them the star of a delicious party dip. Hummus doesn't have to be bland and boring, blend with roasted vegetables, garlic and spice, and enjoy the entire dish guilt free!
