Spicy Crunchy Chickpeas

IMG_2645Spicy and crunchy and healthy, it’s a trifecta of delicious snacks!! Just toss them with a little olive oil and some spices, then roast in the oven until crunchy. They’ll stay crispy for a few days stored in glass container or storage bag at room temperature.

I personally use all organic ingredients when making this dish.
