Snack Crack(ed) Beans

We were in the mood for something salty and crunchy- and potato chips/pretzels/crackers were nowhere to be found!

These certainly filled that niche, and now we are addicted to them! Fortunately, they’re pretty healthy as well.

Ingredients (makes enough for a snack for two!):

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • (1 tbsp olive oil)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (or 425°F).
  2. Combine first five ingredients in a bowl. Layout on a stick-free oven-safe pan. The layer should be only 1 bean deep.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Take out, toss. Do a little taste-testing here (and don’t burn your tongue!). Add a bit more salt/cumin/garlic for more flavor only if needed.
  4. Drizzle the second tablespoon of olive oil over the beans. Put back in oven and bake for 5 more minutes.
  5. Remove from oven & enjoy!
