Great Vegan Snack–Roasted Garbanzo Beans

Garbanzo beans are a super food.  They’re high in fiber so they promote digestive health and appetite control. Plus, they carry a low glycemic load so they are easy on the insulin levels.  A cup of garbanzos will give you nearly 30% of your USDA of protein and 50% of your fiber in only 268 calories!
