Spicy Roasted Garbanzos Recipe

If you’re looking for healthy snack options these easy and tasty roasted garbanzos, or chickpeas, are just the ticket. They also make a delicious healthy snack for on the go, which is always a challenge to find. Pack a baggie full of this crunchy snack and you’re ready to go!

Roasted Garbanzos are not only super easy to prepare, but they are a good source for dietary fiber and protein. Tasty and healthy! Win! Win! Another thing I like about roasting garbanzos (chickpeas), is that you can change up the seasonings to make your own unique version. This version is bit spicy, but not too much. Of course the seasoning amounts can be easily adjusted to your preference.

The trick with roasting garbanzos is tossing the beans about every 10-15 minutes as they roast. Ovens will vary, but it takes about 45 minutes of total cook time to get them crunchy. Before removing them from the oven, I recommend doing a quick taste test (let it cool first!) to see if they are crunchy and crispy, then add more time as needed.

I’m happy to have an ongoing relationship with Bush’s Beans, but this is not a sponsored post. I just like their beans.
