Roasted Chickpeas

Raven Higheagle


This recipe is an excellent, healthy snack option and great for on the go. Toasted chickpeas are wonderful to grab by the handfuls or to sprinkle on top of salads for a nutritious crunch. I seasoned my chickpeas with a touch of Cajun spice that is not too spicy, but just the right amount for my family. If you are looking for a different, but balanced snack to munch on then these oven roasted chickpeas are for you.
