Fun fact: I used to be OBSESSED with chickpeas. To me, they were the ultimate food. I put them on salads, made burgers out of them and I also started roasting them to make crunchy snacks. My love for buffalo anything plus chickpeas of course brought me to these crispy buffalo chickpeas.

I used The New Primal HOT buffalo sauce in this recipe. Normally, I would go for a medium or mild (which they have) but I knew that the chickpeas by themselves were sponges for the flavor and by the time it all baked down, the spicy stuff would do the trick.
