Crunchy, low fat and packed with protein. This appy can be made up to 3 days ahead of time and stored in an airtight container. Experiment with other seasonings, such as curry powder, smoked paprika or cajun spice blends.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with greased foil. Spread chickpeas on a large plate and blot dry with paper towels.
  3. In a large bowl, combine paprika, garlic powder, salt, cayenne and oil. Add chickpeas and toss to coat.
  4. Spread chickpeas in a single layer on prepared sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes, shaking the pan 2 or 3 times until chickpeas are golden brown and starting to crisp,.
  5. Turn oven off and leave chickpeas in the oven for 10 - 20 minutes to crisp. (at this point, you really want to watch as they can burn quite easily) Remove from oven and let cool slightly on baking sheet.
