Roasted Honey Cinnamon Chickpeas

INGREDIENTS

15-ounce can organic garbanzo beans
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

DIRECTIONS

    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat silicone mat.
    2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a colander. Place them on a towel to dry off.
    3. Spread chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until crispy. Test one, and if it’s still soft, bake for longer.
  1. While the chickpeas are still hot, toss them in a bowl with the oil, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Enjoy as is, or for a caramelized effect, place them back in the oven for another 10 minutes or so.
  2. Store leftover chickpeas in an airtight container.

Makes 4 servings. See below for the nutritional information of 1 serving.
