Spiced Chickpea “Nuts”
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
When roasted in a hot oven, chickpeas become super crunchy. They’re a great low-fat substitute for nuts when salty cravings hit.

When I removed the tray after 15 minutes to stir, one of the garbanzos blew up in my face. After the second 15 minutes, they were all over the oven. I don't think that this is a repeat for me.
I agree that this is a very good recipe. What I like is that you can adapt the seasonings to meet your taste preferences. Cayenne pepper is a good addition if you like hot and spicy. I used 5-spice yesterday and enjoyed that flavor profile. I lowered the oven temp to 400 and cooked for 45 minutes.
This was a very good snack, but I probably won't make this recipe again. This is one of those snacks that needs to be eaten within a day because the chickpeas lose their crunch fairly quickly. Also, they required a lot longer to cook than the recipe stated. This would be a good dish to make for a party or a long car ride. I would suggest toasting the spices on the stove with the oil before coating the chickpeas and baking. This would bring out the flavor of the spices a lot more.
