Crunchy, Salty, Yummy, Healthy Snack!

Chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans, belong to the legume family, which includes a variety of beans, peanuts, soybeans and lentils. Opting for legumes over foods high in saturated fat might lower your risk of heart disease, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Chickpeas also offer specific health benefits, and consuming them regularly boosts your intake of a few key nutrients.

Crunchy Garbanzos
•1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
•1 tbsp olive oil
•Mexican spice (or any other spices you crave)

Rinse beans and then pat until totally dry. Toss in olive oil and spices until coated. Place in a single layer on baking sheet then bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes (stirring once or twice). Makes three servings.
