These crunchy salty bites of deliciousness totally kill a chip craving. Plus, they have protein and tons of fibre and minerals, unlike junk food snacks!

Ingredients
1 1⁄2 cups cooked chickpeas, 
dried well
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp dried rosemary
1⁄2 tsp fine sea salt

Directions
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, toss together chickpeas, grapeseed oil, rosemary and sea salt until well coated. Spread chickpeas on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until crisp.

Joyous Tip
Be sure to dry the chickpeas really well. This will help the oil and seasonings stick better. Chickpeas are incredible for your digestive and detoxification systems. They are a rich source of insoluble fibre, which remains undigested until it reaches the last part of your large intestine. Here it becomes a valuable fuel source for the bacteria in your colon, which produce short-chain fatty acids that feed the cells of your intestinal wall. This can help reduce the risk of certain cancers, including colon cancer.
