Sweet Roasted Chickpeas

I never really knew what to do with beans.  Many others suggest to eat beans because they are healthy.  My family and I never did eat beans very often when growing up.  When we did, I made sure to not sleep on the same floor as my father.  But i guess that is a story for a different day.

So what to do with the beans? I was lucky and recently managed to stumble on a Chickpea recipe from www.fitsugar.com.  I modified the recipe by adding some brown sugar and added extra nutmeg. For some reason I just love nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon.  I guess this is the reason that makes me right at home when spice cake comes around.  I hope you enjoy these tasty little treats, which were an excellent snack for when I was writing this post. 😉
