Taste: added 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika and another 1/2T olive oil to balance the addition of the paprika. Seems fine to me but others must judge for themselves. Plenty of ideas offered on this topic already. Your spice cabinet awaits!
Crunch: 30 min on an "airbake" style baking sheet with perforations produced a crunchy result for some "nuts" out of the oven, but most of the interiors were soft. Adding another 5min (total 35 min) did not make all of them crunchy. Adding still another 5 min (total 40): all now crunchy but about a third burned. Adjusting the temperature to 400 or 425 F might help, but I'm going to try putting the raw beans in my electric food dehydrator first off to see if that helps with crunchiness at the end.
I think proper cooking equipment will make an important difference to the success of this recipe, as will reliance on organic ingredients.
