Chickpeas can make a great low-fat, high-fiber snack, and there is more to them than just hummus! If you love the texture and crunchiness of corn nuts, then you will love snacking on this healthy alternative of roasted chickpeas.

Chili Lime Roasted Chickpeas
Makes about 6, ¼ cup servings

15oz can chickpeas
3 tsp chili powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground sea salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spread chickpeas out on a foil covered baking sheet. Bake for 45-50 minutes, stirring and flipping every 15 minutes or so. While chickpeas are roasting, combine oil, chili powder, lime juice, sea salt, and cumin in a bowl and whisk together. When chickpeas are near the end of their cooking time and have become golden and crunchy, remove them from the oven and let them cool for one minute. Pour chickpeas into the oil/seasoning mixture and stir to ensure they are evenly coated. Place the chickpeas back onto the foil covered baking sheet. Bake for a couple more minutes until the mixture has dried onto the chickpeas.
Note: cooking time varies, so pay close attention to their color, and sample for crunchiness.

    These look great! If kept in an airtight container, how long should these stay fresh?

      Hi Jennifer! My Roasted Chickpeas usually get eaten by my friend and family the day I make them, so I have not tried storing them. I would imagine they would stay crisp for 2-3 days in an airtight container! Let me know how it goes! xo
