    This looks awesome, I’m going to try it. I struggle with wanting something crispy and snacky, but I try not to eat processed foods. Can’t wait to try it!

    These are great! I have made roasted chickpeas in the past, but the parmesan, oregano, and red pepper flakes in this recipe is much more flavorful and interesting.

    I also branched out and made a cinnamon sugar batch, using my cinnamon sugar grinder.

    Two tips: 1. Make a double batch (two cans). Just one can of chickpeas does not yield much for the effort put forth. 2. Bake them much longer than 20 minutes to achieve a better crunch. I baked mine for almost 40 minutes.
