Finding snacks that aren’t bad for you is hard enough, but finding quick and easy vegan and gluten-free snacks can be even harder. We love roasted chickpeas because they are delicious and unprocessed, not to mention ridiculously simple to make.
Gluten-free and Vegan Roasted Chickpea Garbanzo Snacks
1 can of organic chickpeas, drained, rinsed and dried
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Make sure any loose skins from the chickpeas are removed. Drizzle the chickpeas in olive oil and stir to coat thoroughly. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper to taste, stirring again. Pour chickpeas onto a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring and flipping them halfway through. Cool before eating.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with seasonings and oils. You can use sesame oil instead of olive oil, or add cayenne, paprika, onion powder, or your favorite seasoning mix.
