Moroccan inspired chickpea snacks

This week I’m doing the $21 challenge (read more about it here) with the aim of using up some of the ingredients I have in my pantry.

I used to detest chickpeas (it was a texture thing), but I’ve slowly come to enjoy them over the last year or so by gradually introducing them into my diet in less intimidating ways such as hommus and chic nuts.

Whilst I enjoy these snacks they can add up dollar-wise so I thought I would try making them myself. I have also recently become addicted to adding Moroccan seasoning to many of my meals so I thought this would be a great addition to my homemade hommus and roasted chickpeas.
