Does anyone else turn into a snack monster when 3 o’clock rolls around? No? Just me? My body works like clockwork, the clock strikes 3 p.m. and I am ravenous. These crispy chickpeas are one of my current obsessions.
They’re a much healthier alternative to whatever I usually reach for when the midday munchies strike. They’re the perfect balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats and are packed with flavor. Get snacking!

- Remove the outer skins of the chickpeas. You can skip this step, but you’ll get a crispier chickpeas if you don’t!
- In a bowl, toss chickpeas with olive oil, Parmesan, and seasonings. Bake for 43-46 minutes.
