Crispy Chickpeas and Pumpkin Seeds

August 29, 2019

Serves 2

  • 1 1/2 cups canned chickpeas, drained
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin or winter squash seeds
  • 1 teaspoon butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons any combination of ground spices*
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put the chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, better, salt, and spices in a bowl. Mix to coat every chickpea and seed with the spices.
  3. Spread the chickpeas and pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and turn the chickpeas and seeds with a spatula. Put the baking sheet back in the oven until everything is crusty and golden, about 10 more minutes.
  6. Let the chickpeas and seeds cool for 10 minutes. Scoop into a bowl and serve.

My notes: This is the perfect snack: inexpensive, healthy, and tasty. Also, it’s so easy to make that my 13 year old made them himself.

*One suggested spice blend is a half teaspoon each of coriander, turmeric, cumin, and cayenne pepper. We used a Penzeys spice blend.
