Parmesan Ranch Roasted Chickpeas

I’m a huge fan of snacking. Actually just now, as I am writing this, I am powering my way through a bowl of trail mix. You know, the kind that has the raisins, nuts, and chocolate candy pieces.

Yes. No shame, in my game.

Of course, I would rather have these but I ate them all in about one sitting after they had been photographed and, sadly, I do not have another can of chickpeas in the cabinet.

So until I go to the grocery store, the regular ole’ trail mix will have to do.

So, yes, as you can see I am a big fan of snacking. As much as I know I should be eating more regular meals, sometimes it just isn’t feasible for me during the day.

Nope, scratch that… most of the time I just forget. Yeah, that sounds about right.

I feed my kids breakfast and lunch but then never end up feeding myself at the same time and end up just grabbing a Shakeology or some other snack. Dinner is sometimes the only meal that I can say is a “true” meal for me.

When I can I try and make my own healthy snacks to keep on hand – like these homemade apple chips – so I’m not tempted by the not-so-good stuff.

This was my first attempt at making roasted chickpeas and they turned out amazing. I absolutely love chickpeas and I had been seeing a few roasted chickpea recipes floating around the interwebs and I felt like giving it a try.

I love it when things turn out right the first time I try them!

Add in a little parmesan and a packet of ranch mix that I had in the cabinet and you have yourself some parmesan ranch roasted chickpeas that will definitely be eaten in one sitting.
