Roasted Garbanzo Beans

roasted garbanzo beansAlso known as Chick Peas, I ran across a recipe on Facebook, for making these crunchy little treats, and last night I gave it a try.  Man!  Talk about easy to make.  And super tasty!  Here’s the original recipe and I’ll share what I did to change it a bit.

Roasted Garbanzo Beans

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and patted dry, then placed in a quart ziplock baggie

1 tbsp either olive oil or melted coconut oil, more or less depending on how much you like

1 tsp seasoning mix, like creole seasoning, greek seasoning, italian seasoning, etc.


Drizzle the olive or coconut oil onto the beans in the baggie, sprinkle the spices over the top, seal the bag and shake.  Pour the seasoned beans onto a cookie sheet lined with a piece of parchment paper.  Resist the urge to eat your garbanzo beans before they are roasted.  Okay, maybe eat half a dozen.  Then roast the rest of them for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees, or depending on your level of desired toastyness.

Nutritional information per 1/2 cup serving:  Calories, 150; fat, 7 grams; carbs, 18 grams; fiber, 6 grams; protein, 6 grams.

I was reading that garbanzo beans are great for snacking when you’re trying to lose weight, too.
