Air fried Chickpeas

Chickpeas or garbanzo beans are a powerhouse of nutrition. They are rich in protein, iron, fibre, zinc, B vitamins and much more. Not only are they considered a superfood, they taste great too, whether in a salad, curry, cutlets or just as a snack!šŸ’„

As the title suggests, this recipe is going to be a simple snack which you can make and store in bulk and munch on them all the time! A small warning though, these are pretty addicting and are going to get over sooner than you know it! šŸ•¶

  2. Place the dry chickpeas into a bowl and add salt and the spices you desire. (Stick to the end of this post for some good spice combinations)
  3. Now add the Coconut oil and toss until everything is coated.
  4. Airfry, let cool and enjoy! šŸŽ‰
