Roasted Chickpeas

Lately I have been obsessed with roasted chickpeas! I pretty much make them on a weekly basis. They make the best snack and are super easy to prepare. This snack is perfect when paired with a salad for work-week lunches or as a pre/post-workout snack.

Chickpeas are naturally healthy and satisfying. Some of the health benefits of chickpeas are :

Fiber Advantage and Weight Loss: Like other beans, Chickpeas, are rich in both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. This keeps you feeling fuller longer!

Protein for Vegetarians: Chickpeas are a good source of protein. Combined with a whole grain such as whole-wheat protein, they provide amount of protein comparable to that of meat or dairy foods without the high calories or saturated fats.

Manganese and Iron for Energy Production: Garbanzos are an excellent source of the trace mineral manganese and iron, which is an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes important in energy production and antioxidant defenses.

Although this recipe is absolutely delish…the great thing about this snack is that it can be made with endless amounts of seasoning options. You can make them savory with spices like turmeric, curry, and paprika or even sweet with cinnamon and sugar! Happy Healthy Snacking!

There are many different facets of interest in my personal and professional life. My passion for baking has developed over the past several years; I love the satisfaction of sharing my delicious treats with friends and family. My sweet tooth, and love of baking is quite contradictory of my profession. I am a dentist, and currently a post-doctoral student, studying a dental specialty. My other interest is health and fitness...again...quite controversial of my baked goods..but, I believe....all things in moderation. I enjoy running and working out, and even making healthy entrees for my husband and I. After following several other food blogs, I decided, that this would be a new hobby. I am passionate about everything I take part in, and hope that you enjoy this blog and that it inspires you to make each day delicious with homemade prepared meals....and desserts :)
