Swimsuit season is just weeks away… are you ready?

I am. Bahahahahahahaha!!

Ok, maybe not, but I’m getting there.

I have this habit of  “chubbying up” from October 31st through February 14th, only to have to work it off all spring.

What can I say, I love holiday foods with a passion.

Healthy "Indian" Roasted Chickpeas | #snack #healthy #chickpeas

This time of year, I’m on the hunt for light, protein-packed snacks that can satisfy a salty junk food craving. Yet those are hard to come by.

I find using exotic spice blends in healthy snack options, makes them much more intriguing.

Take chickpeas, for instance.

Sure they’re healthy, but they aren’t so great straight out of the can (or boiling water.)

However, spicy Indian Roasted Chickpeas are an entirely different story.

Add a little curry powder and garam masala, then roast until crisp and you have just added serious wow-factor to plain-jane chickpeas.

How to make Roasted Chickpeas

Have you tried roasted chickpeas?

They’re like crunchy little Corn Nuts, but so much better for you.

You can pop them all through movie night without any guilt. They also make a great addition to lunch boxes, or to keep in the glove compartment for road trip snack-attacks.

Folks, Indian Roasted Chickpeas are my new favorite snack.

This particular “Indian” blend of spices really makes the roasted chickpeas sing with ferocious flavor.

I used J.R. Watkins spices in this recipe and noticed a significant difference in zesty appeal. J.R Watkins might be best known for their baking extracts, natural remedies, and personal care items, like baby oil and hand cream.

But don’t forget about the incredible line of natural spices they’ve been providing for over 100 years. J.R. Watkins spices have a high concentration of essential oil, meaning the flavors are intense.

Intense spices are a good thing.

Now go roast some Indian-spiced chickpeas… and while they’re baking why not buy yourself a new swimsuit online!

        Hi there! Making these delicious chickpeas as a healthy snack to recover from all the Christmas cookies! I love the dishes as well, and found them on the Villeroy and Boch website as an appetizer set. Is it possible to order just the bowls in the photo? Couldn’t find them sold separately, just curious. Thank you for this recipe!

    I just came into the world of roasted chickpeas a few weeks ago. I feel like such a dummy for waiting so long. I’m also a huge fan of Watkins extracts for my cookies, but it never occurred to me to try the spices. I will order pronto! Now I’ve gotta try those kale chips I’m hearing so much about!

    Sommer, an excellent post to share with everyone the spice line of J.R. Watkins. I always think of vanilla when I think of Watkins. Thanks for sharing a great healthy snack recipe! Pinning… xo

    Spices and taters go together so well. I’d make a bunch of variations of roasted sweet potatoes.

    I’d get rid of my old spices and maybe give these chickpeas a try!

    I have lots of chick peas and was looking for something different to do with them. I am making this this weekend.

    How wonderful and what a complete set of spices to have. I would definitely make your roasted chickpeas first. SO great for snacking. And I did quite a bit of chubbying up in the holiday months as well. Need to work really hard this Spring! ;)

    looks good. I would probably double the spices and add crushed pepper or cayenne.
