Honey roasted chickpeas ♥

Here is a super easy recipe for honey roasted chickpeas.  These beans have been a lifesaver for my nightly snack attacks! I don't feel as guilty reaching for these as I do when I scoop Nutella straight from the jar (don't tell me you've never done it...come on : )
Chickpeas are high in fiber and rich in victims and minerals. Just don't go too heavy on the sea salt and they are the perfect snack to satisfy that little nagging voice inside you. 
I found several variations online, but this basic one is my favorite. 

recipe courtesy of  Alida's Kitchen
15 oz. can chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
sea salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.  Set aside.
Empty the chickpeas into a colander and rinse until no longer foamy. Drain. 
Put on a paper towel and pat to dry.  Remove skins from the chickpeas.  Gently roll the beans between your fingers and the skins will easily come off ♥
Place the beans in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, or until crunchy (if they are still soft add an additional 5 minutes of baking time).
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk honey and oil. 
Add the hot chickpeas and toss to coat. 

Put the beans back on the baking sheet and return to the oven for an additional 5 - 10 minutes, until caramelized. 
Sprinkle with sea salt ♥
{Other versions I saw added cinnamon & sugar, garlic salt, or cumin.  I say just do what you like }
Let the bean cool completely and store in an airtight container.
