Episode 1 - Greatest Snack Roasted Chickpeas (Apex Nutrition Podcast Intro)

Posted by Kelli Jennings on

I have an all-time favorite snack. It's easy, it's delicious, and it's oh-so-nutritious. 

Here's how to make Roasted Chickpeas and why they ought to be your favorites, too!

Episode 1 Recipe: Roasted Chickpeas


  • 2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, thoroughly drained and rinsed (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice from one lime
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Place all ingredient in a large bowl and toss until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Spread the chickpeas in a single, even layer on baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 40-45 minutes.
  4. Try about 1 cup for a snack.  These may also work well as a spicy, salty fuel option for long rides.  Keep it to just 1/4 -1/2 cup or so at a time.  They are a great source of carbs and sodium, but the extra fiber may be too much for some cyclists while riding.
