Smokehouse Roasted Chickpeas

Hello Beans

So recently I have found myself struggling to get beans in my diet. Generally, my diet is very healthy at the minute but I would like to get to the point that I’m having beans and berries every day as well as more greens so I roasted some chickpeas and I’m pleasantly surprised with how they turned out.

I don’t usually include nutritional information with recipes but depending on how many grams of chickpeas you eat it can greatly increase the calories so be careful with them. I decided 200 calories would be my limit for a good snack and it is just that, a good snack. You feel like you’re eating plenty of them and they are very healthy.
