New Year ..... Healthy Snack

Yes a fairly healthy snack ....
Now it is not often that this happens ... a healthy snack that is not carrot sticks or veggy stick of any sorts.....  Now they can be boring especially when you are trying hard to loose weight,
but here is a snack that I picked up from goodness knows where on one of my searchings and surfings ages ago ...  and have tried it a couple of times with different flavours.

Spice Roasted Crunchy Chickpeas

2 cans chickpeas
2 Table spoons olive oil

Dry spice seasoning

Pre heat oven 220

Rinse and pat dry the peas, place in a large bowl and drizzle on the oil and coat with seasoning  toss together well.
 I used Greggs Southern Style seasoning ... but you could use a taco seasoning or thai  or any curry powder  or Chinese five spice ... what ever flavour you or your family like.

Lay in single layer on a backing sheet and bake for 40 mins checking after 30 mins in case any are burning. They are almost done when they begin to shrivel and are half their size.
 Use all 40 mins as they have to dry out.  leave to cool

Store in a airtight container.
