Oven Roasted Chickpeas

I’ve seen this snack pop up on quite a few blogs recently. Hubby and I love chickpeas, so snacking on them sounded delicious. Since first making these, I’ve made them two more times. I love playing with the flavors used to spice them.

These would be a great addition to your Superbowl spread! Speaking of which, be sure to check my sidebar for some of my Superbowl favorites!

Oven Roasted Chickpeas

Ingredients:

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400.

Drain canned chickpeas and rinse in a colander under running water. Pat chickpeas dry with paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Add oil; sprinkle with spices/seasonings and salt. Stir to coat.

Spread chickpeas on nonstick rimmed baking sheet; bake 20 minutes. Stir; then roast 10-15 minutes longer, checking frequently, until crisp but not burnt. (Cooking times may vary). Allow to cool before eating. Will keep several days refrigerated in a covered container.

    I loooove this stuff. I’ve always called it Muddy Buddy, though.

    I made this as treats to the humans from our 2 dogs. My mom fell in love with it and went out right away and bought the ingredients. Merry Christmas.

    Everyone always raves about this stuff but I confess: I’ve never had it! I was allergic to peanuts during childhood 🙁
    But it looks so good that I think I need to give it a try now!

    This stuff is sooo good. I’ve never made it myself, but have had it several times. Perhaps I’ll make it sometime soon.

    One of my college roommates made this for us, and I’ve been in love with them since! We usually use Crispix, though, which is rice and corn. =)

    We love that stuff too! We make it for our friends all the time and they can’t stop eating it.

    Like Joy said, we use Crispix too.

    Why is this called Puppy Chow mix? At first I thought it was for dogs and was alarmed by the chocolate chips in the ingredients…

    No idea why it’s called Puppy Chow… That’s just what we always called it…
