Spicy Chili Lime Roasted Chickpeas

I have been seeing variations of this Spicy Chili Lime Roasted Chickpea Snack around for a while.

It took me until just a few months ago to actually try it for myself.

Honestly, I didn’t have very high hopes, but I was pleasantly surprised by this snack.

I loved the crunch of the roasted chickpeas, the spicy flavor, and of course the fact that they were a healthy snack.

Something that I didn’t feel disturbed appetites before dinner or filled stomachs with empty calories.

I never mind fueling the body with extra servings of things that are good for them.

I also loved that Spicy Chili Lime Roasted Chickpeas were also Madeline approved, which was possibly the most pleasant surprise of all.
