Oven Roasted Chickpeas

How to make Oven Roasted Chickpeas

We usually eat chickpeas mashed into a flavorful hummus, but since we’ve been homebound lately, we have had more time for homemade snacks.  We tossed these pulses (legumes with edible seeds) in olive oil and a few of our favorite spices and roasted them into one satisfying tasty snack.  Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are a great source of nutrients like fiber, protein, B-vitamins, calcium, and iron.  These fiber-filled peas may help stabilize blood sugar and cholesterol levels-promoting optimal heart health. The iron and calcium content found in chickpeas is essential for keeping your bones strong; B-vitamins can help increase energy stores.  Chickpeas have a creamy texture and slightly nutty flavor that pair well with just about any seasoning.  Enjoy these powerhouse peas as a snack, side dish, or add them to a salad!
