Snacks are a big deal at our house. Someone is always hungry and looking to munch on a little something. We can now add these delicious nutty-tasting crunchers to our snack rotation. These roasted chickpeas are the perfect thing to nosh on. They pack a serious and satisfying crunch, have a wonderful savory flavor and are loaded with nutritional value (chickpeas are an excellent source of vitamin B6, folate, fiber, manganese, iron, potassium and protein).

This recipe is super easy to prepare! It comes together in a couple of minutes and bakes for 60 minutes. You just have to set the timer and stir every 15 minutes. Some ovens run hotter than others. If you sense that they are getting too dark too quickly, pull them out and give them a stir and, if need be, reduce the heat to 375 degrees or 350 degrees. I’ve listed our family’s favorite version, but try your favorite seasonings (rosemary, curry, onion powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, black pepper, more salt) and experiment with your own version.
