Crispy Roasted Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

I found this recipe on the Steamy Kitchen blog and decided to give it a try. My girls love baked kale, so why not baked chickpeas? I was right, they love them! I really liked them too. What a great, healthy snack that's also a good on-the-go snack. Win win :)
  • 1/2 bag of dried garbanzo beans/chickpeas (same thing), soaked and cooked in advance
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • garlic powder or whatever seasoning you'd like
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. I had just finished cooking the beans, so I strained them and placed them on a paper towel on top of the cooking stone (or cookie sheet) to dry them. Cover with a second paper towel and rub dry. This will also loosen any loose skins that you can then easily remove.
  3. Sprinkle with olive oil and salt and garlic.
  4. Shake around to coat well.
  5. Bake for about an hour, or until nice and crispy.
  6. Enjoy!
Since I cooked the entire bag of beans, I am freezing the leftover unbaked ones and plan on making hummus with it soon. Stay tuned for that recipe, as it will be my first time making homemade hummus!

What a great idea! Thank you for sharing :) I use coconut oil all the time (especially to make popcorn). I'll have to try it with this!
