Cinnamon Baked Chickpeas

As a child, I loved most all beans, but I would not eat chickpeas.  There was something about them that just turned me off.  It wasn’t until I got to college and learned that hummus was made from chickpeas that I gave their “natural” form a try.  And of course, I loved them!  

Our family does not eat a lot of legumes/beans, but when we do one of our favorite ways to prepare them is to bake them in the oven.  They can be made sweet or savory.  Today’s recipe is a simple sweet version: cinnamon baked chickpeas.
