Chickpeas, literally called “hummus beans” in Hebrew (גרגירי חומוס), are a basic staple of the Israeli Mediterranean Diet. High in protein and dietary fiber, this tempting treat actually has some positive health benefits (not too mention they travel well in a zip-lock bag)! Out of the oven, they are crunchy and delectable. Make sure to share them with friends and family as well, as these are quite kid friendly due to their sweetness.

Once your Tasty Maple Syrup Roasted Chickpeas cool down, dig in! Personally, I rather enjoy roasting nuts and baking “easy as” recipes for road trips. Kids absolutely love these sweet and healthy chickpeas. Seal them up for travel or eating later on. While they may not be as crunchy as they are when initially pulled out of the oven, they still satisfy.
