Roasted Chick Pea Snack

I have been trying to eat a little healthier lately (sort of), and in doing so, I came across a little snack that I absolutely love.  It is packed full of protein and sure beats out those deep fried snacks that are loaded with carbohydrates.  These roasted chick peas are a delicious and healthy snack!

I decided to add some Italian spices to the chick peas I prepared today, but there are many different ways you can serve these up.  You can keep it as simple as adding a little sea salt, or chili powder and cumin, or you could make a sweet snack and use cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.  The possibilities are endless.  Not only are they good as a snack but they are also a great salad topper.

So ENJOY and take care!

1 pinch black pepper

1 dash red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 400F.  Whisk oil and spices together.  Add chick peas to mixture and toss to coat completely.  Spread on a baking sheet.  Roast, stirring occasionally until browned and slightly crispy, 40-45 minutes.
