Indian-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

These take no time at all and you have a healthy snack. I bet kids would like them too and they wouldn't even know they're eating healthy. I forgot to toss them halfway through and it didn't make one bit of difference. Man these are good..

Indian-Spiced Roasted Chickpeas
Serves 4

2 cups canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 F. Combine chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil, sugar, spices and salt in a large bowl; toss well. Spread on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast, tossing halfway through for 20-25 minutes or until chickpeas are dark brown in spots. Let cool.

Those sound yummy. I make them with just olive oil, paprika and salt, but I'll jazz them up with some of these spices!
