Yeah these are cute little crunch bites makes you addict and keep you busy in  munching them with out any restriction and beats your junk food eating habit.. Drying the chickpeas and baking them for 45 minutes ensure crunchiness..Try this and sure you all will love it. Sharing this recipe for Blogging Marathon under " Bookmarked recipes".
