Maple Chai Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas....I usually eat them only in hummus.

This recipe features a unique combination of sweet and savory flavors that’s comforting in winter and delicious year-round. To give the chickpeas the flavor of exotic chai tea, let's tossed them with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and cloves. A spoonful of maple syrup adds a touch of sweetness that complements the savory elements of olive oil, salt and pepper.

Snack on these Maple Chai Roasted Chickpeas fresh from the oven, or try them atop a salad instead of croutons. Don’t store leftover roasted chickpeas in a plastic container – they’ll quickly lose their crunch. Instead, put them in a large jar with plenty of extra space for air to circulate, or keep them at room temperature in a paper bag.
