Crispy Cinnamon Garbanzo Beans

I found this recipe quite awhile ago in a Cookie magazine (which has since gone out of circulation).  I made it this weekend to snack on since we were having company on Easter.

Very tasty!  And easy. Less fat and more fiber than  nuts too!

Crispy Cinnamon Garbanzo Beans

Crispy Cinnamon Garbanzo Beans

1 cup dried garbanzo beans
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt

  1. Soak beans overnight in cool water. Drain and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. In a bowl, toss the beans with the vegetable oil and sugar.
  4. Spread them in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Roast them in the oven until crunch and no longer soft in the centers, about 45 minutes. (Stir them a few times to prevent burning)
  5. Immediately toss the beans in a bowl with the cinnamon and salt. Cool and serve, or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
