Honey Roasted Chickpeas with Turkish Seasoning are crunchy, loaded with seasoning, a little sweet and spicy, and healthy! This is one snack that you don't have to feel guilty about munching on!
My favorite thing about being a dad is the glamour. As I dig through the closet to find my cleanest dirty shirt, I get to choose whether I want the t-shirt with the formula spit up stain, or the beet puree spit up stain. I choose the beets, because the red stain makes it look like I've been stabbed. That makes me look pretty B.A. I'm so B.A. that I use acronyms when saying B.A.
Luckily I don't have to leave the house much when I'm not at work. Truth be told, I prefer to do my cooking in my pajamas. Yeah, I happily belong to the club of people who instantly gets changed into something comfortable when we get home. That means an old dirty t-shirt and pajama pants. I really should start a YouTube channel to show off my grunge fashion in the kitchen!
When you are lounging around in comfy clothes, you need a satisfying snack. My Honey Roasted Chickpeas with Turkish Seasoning certainly fit the bill. They are crunchy, loaded with seasoning, a little sweet and spicy, and healthy! This is one snack that you don't have to feel guilty about munching on! The seasoning I use on these is my favorite all-purpose Turkish inspired seasoning blend that I've created. I always keep some extra on hand because it also tastes amazing dusted on sweet potato fries!
Honey Roasted Chickpeas with Turkish Seasoning are easy to make. The only trick, if there is one, is when to take them out of the oven. Oven times vary so don't be afraid check on them periodically. You are looking for them to have a bit of a crunch. If they still feel soft when you bite into them, you will want to leave them to bake a bit longer.
As with most of the items I bake nowadays, I roast these on my Gourmet Chic baking mats. They are easy to clean, and nothing sticks to them. Most nonstick baking sheets aren't dishwasher safe, so I like the ease of cleanup when using these, plus I don't have to worry about ruining anymore pans when I burn food onto them.
