Roasted Garbanzo Beans

Roasted Garbanzo Beans are easy to make and really tasty.  This version is from Canyon Ranch Spa and is a popular substitute for high-fat nuts at parties and a nutritious solution for both brown bag lunches and after-school snacks. In fact, they are so simple to prepare that even young children can do it with just a little supervision. And, of course, if the kids make them they are much more likely to want to eat them.
