Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve seen various recipes for roasted chickpeas floating around the flood blog world for quite some time now. It’s something that I always think about making mid-week but don’t have a can of chickpeas on-hand. Then (of course) I forget about it by the time I go grocery shopping on Sunday! Luckily, I wrote it down last week and added it to my list. We all know Sundays are my baking day. Well, this past Sunday was no different – except it wasn’t a sweet baked goodie…instead I baked chickpeas! Just as exciting, right?! Right.

Roasted chickpeas are quite addicting in an interesting way. I kept them simple on my first try, but I’m very excited to change it up again from here on out. Super easy and a very delicious (and healthy – hello, fiber!) snack. Enjoy!
