With the festive season here and all the extra eating and celebrating we do, a healthy tasty snack is always welcome. Even if you aren’t a chicpea fan, I urge you to try this easy recipe, the crispy light nutty result is well worth the time in the oven. I would suggest doubling or even tripling this recipe and use any combination of spice you would prefer.
