Roasted Salty Sweet Chickpeas Vegan Gluten-Free Recipe

What could be better than a snack item that is actually good for you? (Don’t answer that. Because though fibrous and healthy things are delightful, what I really want are Cheez-Its. But pretend I didn’t say that.) Chickpeas, people, aka garbanzo beans! They’re the new thing! Roast these vegan and gluten-free treats up and they get all crispy and crunchy. You can put them on salad, eat them with friends over beers, snack on them while you watch period films - the possibilities are so tempting! 

Roasted Salty Sweet Chick Peas

1 can pre-cooked chick peas 
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs agave nectar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp red or black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
sprinkling granulated stevia 

Give the chick peas a good rinse and put in a bowl. Spoon the oil on top and then the honey (Use the same tablespoon and the agave nectar just slides right off - a cooking tip that I love!) Sprinkle on the rest of the spices and pour onto a baking sheet covered with wax paper. (It helps them crunch up more). Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until shriveled looking. 


Maybe you're not a salty-sweet kind of person? Substitute the sugar and honey for a tad more salt and spice. Or if you want all sweet, omit the salt and add more cinnamon and sugar to take things to the next level! You'll love them.
