Roasted chickpeas are a perfect snack on their own and have an equivalent crunch to corn nuts. As a first attempt I used a mixture of seasonings but some spices tend to burn and the overall taste was unimpressive, which led me to devise a much simpler version. If you have yet to be persuaded to try PB2 then this recipe alone should tip the scale, although any peanut flour will work. The peanut presence in this recipe is fairly mild but really enhances the overall flavor and tastes like an African-inspired snack.
