Pumpkin Spice Roasted Chickpeas

Roasted chickpea's have become one of my favorite snacks. They are an excellent treat to take to work. Perfect for the kiddies snack at school too. The best part about roasted chickpea's is you can make any flavor you like. You can make sweet or savory. They are both equally delicious.

You can easily double this batch too. Maybe even triple it. You will save a lot of money making your own roasted chickpeas.

A few reasons chickpeas are good for you:
Great source of protein, aids in controlling blood sugar levels, high in fiber, loaded with essential vitamins and minerals and protects the heart.

Let's get to the recipe. Here is what you will need.
1 can of chickpeas rinsed and drained
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 - 3 tbsp maple syrup
splash of vanilla

Preheat your oven to 400 degree's Fahrenheit or 200 degree's Celsius.

Spread the chickpea's in a single layer on some paper towel or kitchen towel. Gently pat them dry. 

In a small bowl, mix the pumpkin, spices, syrup and vanilla. 

Pour the chickpea's in and stir making sure the chickpeas are all coated. 

Pour onto a baking sheet preferably lined with foil in a single layer and spread out. 

You are going to bake them for about 35 to 45 minutes stirring every ten minutes. 

After they cool completely, they will be nice and crunchy and delicious. Enjoy.
