Summary

Spiced crunchy chickpeas might be one of the best plant-based snacks of all time due to their ability to satisfy your tastebuds and your belly with their high fiber and protein content. Eat them solo or add them to a salad as a legume “crouton.” If you like spice, these are pretty darn delicious with chipotle chili powder or red pepper flakes added in.
