How to Roast Chickpeas | The Chic Site

I had crunchy chickpeas for the first time with Mediterranean food and I’ve been a little obsessed ever since. Turns out they’re super easy to make and add your own flavors to. Couple that with the fact that I feel like I’m having a crouton on my salad when really I’m having something healthy and it feels like I’m WINNING.

Crunchy chickpeas are a great recipe for anyone trying to eat healthy, or stick to a clean eating plan. You can season them with whatever spices you’d like but I went with a middle eastern vibe. Want to make some? Here’s what you do!

Bake for about 20 minutes or until the chickpeas start to look brown and crunchy. Yum! I ate mine on top of my Mediterranean salad with a side of hummus and it was SO good!
