I love roasting chickpeas for a healthy snack. With their high protein and fiber content, chickpeas make for a great snack. They help to control blood sugar levels, improve digestion, increase satiety, and are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. I tossed my chickpeas with turmeric, cumin, rosemary, black pepper, pink salt, and avocado oil. The flavors came together so nicely.
