A crunchy, golden snack, that is filled with fiber-goodness and can be flavored any way you like it.

Garlic powder, Jerk seasonings, maybe even Splenda and cinnamon - you're the Chef!

These are fantastic on their own and really add crunch to salads!


  • One 14-ounce can of chickpeas, well drained
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Combine drained beans, oil, salt, and spices.
  • Spread, in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Roast, shaking or stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes or until golden-brown and toasted.


Do not sit down with the full batch. Do yourself a favor and measure our a 1/4 to 1/2 cup portion of these. They are delicious but easy to mindlessly eat, so portioning before you start munching is the KEY to keeping these a nice healthy snack!
