High-Protein “Popcorn”

3 cans chickpeas, drained

¼ cup oil*

2 tablespoons chili flakes

2 tablespoons hot paprika

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

*You can go lighter on the oil if you wish. The chickpeas will have less of a “fried” consistency and more of a baked one. But they will still be delicious. Even spraying generously with an oil spray will have great results.

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Toss chickpeas with oil and spices.

Spread them out in a single
layer on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes or until chickpeas are as crispy as desired.
