These ranch flavored roasted chickpeas make for a great savory/ crunchy snack. Chickpeas do contain carbs, but they're also loaded with protein and fiber, so they're the "good" kind. This also means they're pretty filling for a snack, and are great to keep on hand for when the savory snack craving hits. 

I've seen a few recipes out there for roasted chickpeas, and I've been playing around with different flavors.  This one kind of reminds me of ranch flavored corn nuts (which are a definite no-no). So read on for the recipe, it's really simple and involves about 5-10 minutes of prep time.
What you'll need:
2 cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. onion powder
2 tbp. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. mustard powder
1 tsp. dill weed
1 tsp. dried chives
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Total time: 1 hour
Serving size: 1/4 cup
Number of servings: 16

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients except the chickpeas into a large bowl and whisk.
  3. Add the chickpeas to the bowl and gently mix.
  4. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (I also line with parchment paper) and spread the chickpeas out evenly.
  5. Bake for approximately 50 minutes, or until the chickpeas are hardened/ crunchy.  Mix/ turn over after about 25-30 minutes for even roasting.
  6. Let cool and serve.

Enjoy, and have fun playing around with flavors if you feel like it.  I have a tasty soy ginger version in the works that I'll be sharing soon!
