Roasted Chick Pea Poppers – Healthy Protein Snacks

 

What sometimes starts off as a mistake can end in something amazing! Today while I was preparing some chickpeas for the baby, I accidentally left them too long and they got a bit overdone. I am sure Baby J, who is now only 4 months old, would not appreciate ‘slightly burned’ food quite yet. So, I saved them and made a great snack for the older boys. I call them Roasted Chick Pea Poppers, great healthy protein snacks. They are quite addictive, but so healthy!
