Crunchy Chickpea Snacks

If your child likes crunchy foods, try this nutty tasting, high-protein dish that makes the perfect appetizer, snack or side dish

How kids can help:

Spread the chickpeas on the pan, place snack into containers once cooled.

What you need:

  • 1 Can garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

Drain chickpeas and pat dry with a paper towel. In a bowl, toss chickpeas with a drizzle of olive oil and a little salt. Spray baking sheet with non-fat olive oil spray and then spread chickpeas on pan. Roast on 400 for approximately 30 minutes. Toss about every 10 minutes to prevent burning. Let cool. Chickpeas will get crunchy upon cooling.

Helpful note:

Try sprinkling a favorite seasoning on the roasted chickpeas or try salt and paprika or sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar as they come out of the oven.
