Ingredients:

chickpeas ingredients

1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon (to taste) salt

1 teaspoon (to taste) Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425

Drain the chickpeas and pat with paper towel to ensure all liquid is absorbed.

Put chickpeas on cookie sheet and cook for 10 min.

Take the chickpeas out of oven and put in large bowl. Add olive oil, creole seasoning and salt. Shake it up!

Put back on the cookie sheet and bake for another 10 minutes.

Note: I love the spicy taste the creole seasoning gives it, but you can use any seasoning you like! You can try cinnamon if you want a sweeter snack.

Give this snack a chance, I promise you will love it!
