Lunch Air Fryer Let’s share an easy and healthy snack recipe for crispy fried chickpeas!

Hi hi! How are you today? I’m relaxing at home today. I study, clean, attend retail therapy, and cook delicious meals. I made one of my favorite easy air fryer recipes, air fryer chickpeas that are so delicious, I wanted to share it with you.

The kids and I love Vienna’s chickpea snacks (we order them) thriving market!) But they tend to be a bit pricey, especially if the three of us consume one bag at a time. I was looking at it the other day and thought it would be a fun experiment to roast some chickpeas and make my own.

It was much easier than I expected and I made a big batch and enjoyed it yesterday afternoon. These will definitely be making an appearance again as part of my kids’ meal prep and packed lunch snacks.

Tips when using an air fryer:

– Don’t be scared! I was intimidated for a long time and didn’t think it was “worth it” when it came to counter space. Worth it. We use it almost every day, but it’s especially great for frozen foods like fries and vegetables. Potatoes are an air fryer dream, let me tell you.

– Make sure the air fryer basket has space for air to circulate. It doesn’t have to be completely packed.

– If you are looking for easier cleaning options, there are several options available. Air fryer parchment paper.

I have a question for my air fryer friends. my only complaint is Ours is coated with a Teflon-like material. I’m looking for something that comes with a stainless steel basket, but if you have any recommendations, please let me know!

If you try this recipe, please let me know! πŸ™‚

Have a great day! See you again soon.
