I am always on a search for a healthy snack to have on hand both at home and on the go. So after chatting with Dr. Robin, I decided to try out roasted chickpeas. I looked around the internet for some suggestions and tried it myself.

Garbanzo beans (chickpeas) are also high in nutritional value: manganese, folate, copper, phosphorus, protein, iron, zinc, and dietary fiber for blood fat regulation, digestive support, and control of blood sugar and insulin secretion.

This recipe is so simple and delicious that it’s sort of unbelievable. I encourage you to try it today for a little healthy snacking yumminess!


1 can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
any combination of spices

Preheat the over to 400°F and place the rack in the middle. Rinse and drain the chickpeas, place them on a cutting board on top of a paper towel and pat them very dry with another paper towel. Once the chickpeas are very dry, toss them with oil, salt and spices. I used a little bit of cayenne pepper, cumin, coriander, and nutmeg, but you can choose either sweet (cinnamon and little brown sugar) or spicy (curry or a variety of peppers). Place the coated chickpeas on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes. I rotated them a bit after 15 minutes and let them finished roasting. Once done, they should be crunchy on the outside, but still soft on the inside, and yummy all around!
