I decided that I wanted to try something new for a crunchy snack... I feel like when I am trying to eat healthy I can't find anything that has that "crunchy" taste that I am looking for. Carrots, celery and so on just don't have the same effect. So, I thought that these sounded fabulous... . The calories are a little high for a snack for me, but they were super addicting and I ate half of the batch on my own! Watch them carefully when you are baking them, they tend to cook quickly and they are a bit like granola in the fact that they will crisp up more after you take them out of the oven.
Honey Cinnamon Roasted Garbanzo Beans
(recipe found at twopeasandtheirpod.com)
1 (15 ounces) can garbanzo beans
4 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon honey
Preheat oven to 375. Drain garbanzo beans and rinse them under cold water until starch is removed. Place beans on a paper towel to dry. You can peel off the skins if you want. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, cinnamon and sugar. Place beans in a bowl and stir until all the beans are evenly coated. Spread out the beans on a large baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes or until beans are crunchy and no longer soft in the middle. Place hot, roasted beans in a small bowl and coat evenly with honey. Spread beans back out on baking sheet and allow to dry. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
