Chickpeas Please!~

Hello and Happy Friday! So here we are on the rapid countdown to Christmas! I wanted to share this recipe because it is easy to make and will curb your desire for crunchy salty snacks without harming your diet. I am just in the snack"y" mood sometimes and I want crunchy flavorful snacks. This recipe is perfect for those times. I got this idea from whole foods market and made a few small tweaks. I mean isn't everything better tasting when it's roasted?!? Have a wonderful Friday!

What you'll need to get your chickpea on:

1 can of garbanzo beans -- drained and rinsed *organic preferred
1/2 lemon - squeezed on top of the chickpeas
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon smoked paprika - I used just regular paprika
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper - (I used limon chili pepper)

Preheat oven to 425. Mix all above ingredients together in a bowl
and line on a baking sheet. Bake for about 40minutes but shake a 1 - 2 times throughout the baking process. Eat right out of the oven and Enjoy!
