Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

Looking for a high protein snack that will keep you full and satisfied for hours? Roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite low-calorie snacks. They are a great and healthy alternative to mixed nuts, chips, and other munchies. I can’t begin to tell you how many batches of roasted chickpeas we consume in this house. I have made them using both fresh chickpeas and canned chickpeas and honestly you can’t tell the difference after they are roasted. For that reason I usually use canned because they are ready to use. :)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander under running water. Thoroughly dry chickpeas with a kitchen towel. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Add chickpeas and toss until coated with spice mixture. Spread chickpeas out on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, shaking the pan occasionally, until the chickpeas are crunchy and no longer soft in the middle, 35-40 minutes. Test taste every few minutes until desired texture is reached. Place hot, roasted beans in a small bowl and coat evenly with honey. Spread beans back out on baking sheet and allow to dry. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
