Roasted chickpeas are my new go to snack idea. I love the crunchy texture and the endless variations. If you are in the mood for sweet, salty, or savory, you can easily whip up a batch of satisfying roasted chickpeas.

If the cinnamon and honey combo is a little too sweet for you, here are some other salty and savory combos that will rock your taste buds:

My favorite part of these cinnamon and honey chickpeas is sugar glazed outer shell that forms when they cool. It adds a little extra crunch and reminds me of brittle candy. SO GOOD!

If you are looking for an easy snack idea, you must try these cinnamon and honey chickpeas!
