These were such a quick and simple snack for my kiddos. They also taste great! When my husband first popped one in his mouth his reaction was, “Woah, those are chickpeas?!” The honey/cinnamon coating gives the chickpeas a whole new flavor- it’s like a candied chickpea.  Not to mention, I loved the sweet cinnamon-y aroma that filled my house while these were baking! These would also pack great in a lunch.

I sure hope you have enjoyed these “fall” recipe ideas this week! More to come next week! Have a great weekend, everyone!
