Crunchy Cumin Chick Peas

Baked chick peas are the perfect grab-and-go snack that will satisfy that salty craving while keeping you on track! A nice alternative to crunching on chips, chick peas are full of fiber and protein to keep you full and fueled for your day ahead!

These homemade, flavorful lil guys can be seasoned however you like: add some honey for sweetness, fresh garlic for and extra bite or even red pepper flakes for heat!

Here’s what I did:

Ingredients:

1 can chick peas (drained and rinsed)

3 Tablespoons olive oil

1/2 teaspoon each of-

salt

pepper

garlic powder

ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon paprika

 

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl place the chick peas, olive oil and all spices. Toss to coat each bean evenly.
  2. Put the coated beans onto a baking sheet and cook at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until browned and crispy, tossing every few minutes.

Keep these in an air tight container on the counter or in a cool, dry place for up to 2 weeks! Or store portions in ziploc bags for an easy, on-the-go snack!
