Honey Roasted Chickpeas

Honey Roasted Chickpeas


What you need:

  • 15 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • sea salt, add to taste

The how-to:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and set aside.
Empty chickpeas into a colander. Rinse until no longer foamy and drain. Put chickpeas onto paper towels to pat dry.  remove skins from chickpeas. Totally not necessary, but I highly recommend doing it.  I didn’t, but wish I had.
Place chickpeas in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes, or so until chickpeas are on the crunchy side. If they’re still soft, put them back in for another 5 minutes until crunchy.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk honey and oil and spices. Add hot chickpeas and toss to coat. Pour chickpeas back on lined baking sheet and return to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until caramelized. Sprinkle with sea salt, as desired, and let cool. Store in an airtight container.

I’ve been adding these to salads and munching on them as snacks!  So yummy!
