Roasted Chickpeas

My daughter loves chickpeas. I carry them as a snack on the go for her but they are not exactly an easy grab and go snack. Since I love roasting everything, my son and I roasted chickpeas today!

My son enjoyed getting his hands slippery and dirty while tossing the chickpeas (this provided tons of entertainment), and my daughter asked to bring them as a snack on the way to the park. Healthy bonus- chickpeas are filled with fiber, protein, and iron. Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!

Roasted Chickpeas Recipe
2 15oz cans of chickpeas- drained and rinsed
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

On the baking sheet.


1.)  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.)  On a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil, evenly spread out chickpeas.
3.)  Drizzle on olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper.
4.)  Toss beans right on the baking sheet. Let your child get his hands messy!
5.)  Bake for 50 minutes.
A healthy snack to take on the go!
