Agave Roasted Chickpeas

Howdy ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!

Yesterday was absolutely amazing–I got to see the President and listen to Dave Matthews on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. What better way to end my Senior year?!ย (you can watch the episode here! I’m wearing a bright orange jacket in the balcony–I am pretty sure I saw myself in a few audience shots ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

And today is officially my last day as a Carolina Senior. It’s bittersweet. Between all the craziness of final exams weighing students down, I haven’t had a second to really soak it in. But this is it. Today is the last day of my college career (unless you count finals week…). Whew–I don’t want to get all mushy gushy now, though. I’ll save that for graduation ๐Ÿ˜‰

Roasted Chickpeas

In an attempt to make a midnight snack, I decided to try out a veggie I have not roasted before: chickpeas. I have read that they roast really well, giving them a crispy shell. And what better time to create a crunchy snack, than at 12:00 a.m. I had to keep myself preoccupied until the Jimmy Fallon show came on at 12:35 a.m., anyways.

Garbanzo beans = chickpeas

Agave Roasted Chickpeas

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tsp. agave
  • 1 tsp. oil of choice (I used EVOO)
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • sprinkle of pepper

Drain chickpeas and pat dry. Combine with all other ingredients and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 30-40 min. Every ten minutes, give the peas a shake so they cooke evenly and don’t burn!

some rosemary I dried a few weeks ago

Going in...


The sweetness from the agave and cinnamon work really well with the rosemary. And I like the bite from the pepper. If you have white pepper or maybe even cayenne, I think those would be interesting substitutes.

I also tried a batch this morning with Cajun seasoning and sea salt–love that combo, too!

I hope you enjoy! Happy hump day!
