Greetings. I'm wondering about the calorie information for the Roasted Garbanzos recipe on the Healing Heart website. I'd love to believe that 4 oz. of chickpeas is only 18+ calories, but ... Is that correct? Here's the recipe and info:

1 can garbanzo beans, no salt added
seasonings to taste (see hint below)

Rinse and drain a can of garbanzo beans. Shake in a zipper bag with spice of your choice. Lay out on a non-stick cookie sheet and sprinkle with your choice of flavorings (see Hint below). Bake at 400 for 25 minutes.

Each 4 oz serving: 18.6 calories: 12% from fat (0.3 g), 66% from carbohydrates (3.1 g), 22% from protein (0.94 g). Sodium: 1 mg (but salty spices will increase this) Fiber: 1 g

Healing Heart Hint

For flavorings try Spike, hickory-smoked tortula yeast, curry powder, onion powder, garlic powder or cinnamon and sugar (all have no sodium). Other flavors may raise sodium content, but if salt is not a concern: cajun flavor, artificial butter-flavor salt (for popcorn), or any others your imagination can provide.
