What way will you have yours?
- 1 can Chickpeas
- Low cal spray
- Seasonings of your choice
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Prepare the beans for roasting by draining and rinsing them, then letting them dry on a towel until most of the excess moisture is absorbed.
Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a baking mat. Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until the beans are crunchy throughout.
Immediately (while beans are still hot), toss with low cal spray oil and seasonings of your choice . Serve hot or at room temperature.
