Spicy Honey Roasted Chickpeas!!! YES!

As a clean eating food blogger, I am frequently asked what do I consider the hardest part of clean eating? While my first reaction is to say all the dishes you have to wash (the sad truth is when you cook you have a lot more dishes then when you go out to eat…sorry guys), the truth is…the hardest part for me is finding delicious clean eating snacks.

Since finding interesting and delicious clean eating snacks can be a problem sometimes, I wanted to create a recipe that would be inexpensive, simple, and satisfying. The result…Spicy Honey Roasted Chickpeas! They are simple to make. Just combine a bunch of spices you probably already have in your cabinet, add the chickpeas and stir. Toss them in the oven for about 30 minutes and you are good to go! They have just enough heat to get your attention without burning your taste buds off.  But I will warn you…be careful…these little guys are addictive!

 Local Ingredient: Local Honey (purchased from a local health food store)

  • Combine all the spices in a bowl and mix well.
  • In another bowl combine the chickpeas, olive oil and honey. Toss until the chickpeas are well coated.
  • Add the spices to the chickpeas and stir until the chickpeas are coated evenly.
  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil. Pour on the chickpeas and distribute evenly.
  • Roast at 400 degrees F for 30-40 minutes until the chickpeas are crispy.
