Introduction

I actually got the basics of this recipe when I went to a tops meeting with my mother in law! Get em crispy enough and they are soo tasty! Like eating chips or popcorn but without most of the guilt because they are so jam packed with protein and only have under 200 calories a serving. It feeds four as an appetizer but I'm not gonna lie, I've sat down and had em for lunch and ate an entire batch! They even have a good amont of fiber so enjoy!

Ingredients

    1 15.5oz can Garbanzo Beans/Chickpeas - sometimes I find them at the grocery store with the rest of the beans... other times with the Mexican food section although not really sure why...

    2 Tbsp. Olive Oil -- Or enough to coat the beans

    Season to your liking (See cooking instructions)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Rinse and drain beans and place in bowl with enough olive oil to fully coat. Add seasoning and shake until mixed thoroughly.

Season beans to your liking:
1. Garlic and Pepper
2. Tabasco and Taco Seasoning
3. BBQ Sauce
4. A1 Sauce

Bbq sauces take a little longer in the oven to get the beans crispy than dry spices. Line pan with aluminum foil and spray with non stick cooking spray. Spread beans evenly so they aren't on top of each other.

Roast for apx 30-45 minutes checking every 15 minutes and shaking pan so beans don't stick. When beans are brown and crunchy remove and enjoy!

Number of Servings: 4

    I tried this because I was looking for a healthy snack, however my husband tried them and now makes them himself trying all kinds of different flavor combinations. To save money, we buy dry garbanzo beans in bulk and soak them overnight before using this recipe. Cheap and healthy!! Awesome!! - 3/15/09

    I used only 1tbsp. of olive oil and seasoned them with garam masala, cardamon, red chile powder, and ground ginger. They were good right out of the oven, but they got soft the next day. I think maybe I needed to let them cool more before I packed them away. - 4/19/09

    These are very good. I seasoned with chile powder, a little cayenne pepper, and sea salt. My only complaint is that at about the time when they were finished cooking, they began popping and exploding all over my oven! So they made a mess, but I would make them again in a heartbeat. - 3/14/09

    I don't use any olive oil. I spray the pan with an olive oil spray but none on the beans at all. I used canned and rinse well. I'd like to experiment with dry beans and soaking.. The seasoning I use is salt/garlic powder/red pepper flakes. SOOOO yummy! - 1/13/11

    I did this as you explained, they were good, using dried beans, tho. Knowing what they should tast like, I tried my own variation. I used "I can't believe its not butter" spray. Lowering the calories to 110 (beans) will continue to make it this way for a more buttery taste and less calories! - 4/6/09
