Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas




Salty, Crunchy, delicious-ness...... AND the bonus is they are healthy!


Chickpeas are a great source of protein, zinc, iron, calcium, phosphorus, b vitamins and fibre. All of which your body loves for energy, immunity, growth and repair!


These taste great as solo snack, or even mixed into salads for extra crunch!


This snack is a staple in my kids lunchboxes!
