*As a mom of 3 teenage kids, I'm always looking for healthy snacks. All 3 of my kids loved this! I was so excited...I will make this easy recipe again. The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese, but I deleted it since I don't eat dairy and am trying to limit my kids dairy intake.
2- 15 1/2 oz cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans). I buy organic. Drain and rinse well.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic (I did 2 because we love garlic)
1/2 tsp sea salt (I will use 3/4 tsp next time...I think they needed a touch more salt)
Fresh ground pepper to taste
-Spread chickpeas on several layers of paper towel and let dry for 30 min
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Add chickpeas and toss to coat. (If you are using cheese, add the cheese into the bowl as well)
-Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 45-50 minutes until golden and crispy.
*This is a great snack for a road trip, seeing a movie, after a workout, or any other time when you need a healthy snack!
