Chickpea Poppers

Chickpea or garbanzo bean? It is all a matter of opinion. Either way these poppers are delicious and easy to make. We are always looking for alternative snacks to cut down on processed foods with long lists of ingredients we cannot pronounce. You can use whatever seasoning you like, next time I make these I am going to try a sweet version with cinnamon.
