Easy Fiber-Rich Roasted Chickpeas
- 1 15 oz can of chickpeas, drained (or dry soaked overnight & drained)
- 1 Tablespoon olive or avocado oil
- ½ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt (or to taste)
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
- 1 scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder (optional)
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Combine drained chickpeas, olive oil, salt, paprika, cayenne, and collagens powder (if using) in a large bowl. Stir well to ensure the chickpeas are evenly coated.
- Spread chickpeas over a large baking sheet. Bake in the center of the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes, until chickpeas are golden and look dry on the outside, about 20-30 minutes (cooking time varies depending on oven and crispiness desired). Be mindful towards end of baking as chickpeas can burn easily. Remove from oven. Serve warm or cooled as a snack or added to salad.

Cayenne pepper is a good source of beta carotene and antioxidants that support the immune system. The key compound in cayenne called capsaicin is also cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, helps prevent kidney stones and speed up metabolism and has beneficial effects on the GI system.
Chickpeas are a good plant-based source of protein and fiber. They are packed with nutrients including iron, vitamins B6 and K, magnesium, folate, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, choline, and selenium.
