Here’s a super easy, delicious snack packed with protein and fiber to keep you full and satisfied. Chickpeas are full of nutrition and are a great source of iron and other minerals the body needs to function properly. They’re most commonly used for hummus, so here’s another fun idea to add them into your diet.
Serve these crunchy spiced chickpeas as an appetizer for guests, or make it for yourself if you’re craving a savory snack. Play with different spices and flavors to make it your own. Kids love it, too, just consider removing the cayenne pepper for them.

(This recipe can easily be doubled for a larger crowd.)
Preheat the oven to 400º. Rinse and drain the chickpeas well so excess water is not added to the bowl. Toss all ingredients in a bowl, then bake on a baking sheet for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and crunchy, turning them halfway through (spread them out on a large baking sheet so they have room to cook and are not crowded). Let cool and serve warm or room temperature.
