Crispy Air-fried Chickpeas

Air-fried chickpeas are such a great snack!  Healthy and super tasty.  Crispy on the outside and slightly soft on the inside. 

Ever since we discovered we can make them in the air-fryer we’ve been making them all the time.  This recipe is a modification of the recipe on Sweet Peas and Saffron that my sister Vicky forwarded to me.  Enjoy!
