Roasted Honey Cinnamon Chickpeas

Ingredients

  1. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Store leftover chickpeas in an airtight container.
