Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Thinking of healthy, travel snacks for the kids can be tricky. When you are on the road it may be easy to bring along packaged snacks but many times they are full of sugar, preservatives and things that aren’t so great for the littles. Crispy Roasted Chick Peas (otherwise known as garbanzo beans!) might just be an answer. This salty, crunchy snack is a good alternative to chips that both kids and adults will enjoy and travels easily in a sealed container.
