When it comes to snacking, we all feel guilty. But what if we have some thing healthy and tasty? Chickpeas, a really good source of protein and fiber can be consumed almost everyday. If you are tired of making chickpeas in the way you always make it, here is a different way – bake them! Season the chickpeas and bake them. I couldn’t wait for the chickpeas to cool down. It was very crunchy and tasted  really good with all the seasonings. You could also give your own special touches by altering the seasonings.
