Maple, Cinnamon and Almond Glazed Chickpeas

Maple Cinnamon and Almond Chickpeas

If you have ever had those delicious roasted nuts that they sell at carnivals, you will love today’s recipe for Maple, Cinnamon and Almond Glazed Chickpeas. It is a healthy take on those sweet and aromatic nuts. We are using high protein chickpeas and glazing them in real maple syrup for sweetness, then adding almond extract and cinnamon to season them. Your house will smell awesome and you will have a sweet and crunchy snack to curb cravings without reaching for something unhealthy. I recommend doubling the recipe because these won’t last long!
