Put down the potato chips! These salty, crunchy chickpeas make for a satisfying snack with none of the guilt. Makes an original appetizer, too!
1 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp chili powder
salt + pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Rinse and drain the chickpeas, then place them over a paper towel and pat them dry. Transfer them to a bowl. Add the olive oil, chili powder, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss, then transfer to a baking sheet that's been lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
3. Bake for a total of 45 minutes, stirring them around with a spatula twice during the baking time to make sure they don't burn. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Instead of chili powder, you can use ANY spices you like - paprika, curry powder, garlic powder - anything goes!
