Smoky Roasted Chickpeas

When we have family coming from out of state, we like to get plenty of snacks ready, especially snacks and finger foods we can take to the beach. These smoky roasted chickpeas are perfect for having on hand in a nice jar or other airtight container. We only have about a block to walk, so we can go to the beach on a whim, and our food and drinks need to be easy to grab and carry without a lot of prep. Today, I made three quick beach snack recipes: these roasted chickpeas, some Roasted Mixed Nuts, and Raspberry Hand Pies. Three great snacks for the beach, all only requiring quick assembly and a short time baking. These chickpeas are a nice smoky garlic-y snack to balance the sweetness of the other two recipes. If you have any leftovers, the roasted chickpeas and nuts are also delicious in salads! Take these on the go or munch on them in front of the TV.

GLUTEN FREE OPTION: To make a gluten free version of this recipe, be sure to use gluten free garlic powder and paprika.

Smoky Roasted Chickpeas
Smoked paprika gives these their deeper flavor. Don't skimp on the olive oil - it's the secret to the crispiness. Refrigerate for keeping.
