Crunchy Kidney Bean Snacks


1 - 16 oz can kidney beans
2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 400F. Drain and rinse kidney beans. Place on a paper towel to remove as much excess moisture as possible. Mix brown sugar and spices together. Set aside. Toss kidney beans with one tablespoon of olive oil. Place on a large baking sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Place hot kidney beans in a large mixing bowl. Pour in one tablespoon of olive oil. Shake the brown sugar/spice mixture over the kidney beans. Toss to evenly coat. Return kidney beans to baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes or so, or until beans are completely dried out and crunchy.
