A CRISPY, CRUNCHY, PROTEIN PACKED VEGAN SNACK!

If you are looking for an easy better for you snack, try these crispy chickpeas.  Be warned, they can be addictive!

You can use canned or cooked dry chickpeas for this recipe, but the key is you want them as dry as possible before popping them in the air-fryer.  The dryer they are the less time it will take for the to become perfectly crunchy.

I love these as a snack but also as a crunchy topping added to soups and salads.  It 's a perfect way to add some plant-based protein!
