Honey cinnamon roasted chickpeas recipe
Yields about 1 cup
- 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat.
- Rinse canned chickpeas until they are clean. Remove the skins and add to a medium-sized bowl.
- Add olive oil, cinnamon, cinnamon sugar and salt to the bowl. Stir until all the chickpeas are coated evenly.
- Add chickpeas to the lined baking sheet and put in the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes until toasted and give them a good toss. Bake for another 15 minutes until they are crispy. Remove from the oven and toss chickpeas with honey. Put back in the oven for about 5 minutes just to set up the honey.
Make a note
Because we added sugar and honey be careful to watch your chickpeas. They can burn very easily! It's always better to overstir than understir.
