Roasted Spiced Chick Peas

 I am always seeking out a healthy snack that wont leave me feeling guilty...this is the perfect combination of crunchy, salty, healthy, & most important DELISH!! You're going to want to keep this recipe around for those uncontrollable urges to snack! Watch out...they are addicting!

 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
 1 tsp cinnamon
 1 tsp cumin (curry is yummy too for a more Indian flavor)
 1/2 tsp allspice
 1 tsp salt
 1/2 tsp pepper
 *Note* All of these spices can be switched to your own preference so have fun with it!
 2 cans of garbanzo beans drained, rinsed, & patted dry
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium to large bowl combine olive oil and all your spices and seasonings. Toss your rinsed & patted dry garbanzo beans with spice mixture. Spread beans evenly onto a baking sheet pan and roast about 50-55 minutes; stirring the beans about every 15 minutes. Happy snacking!
