These are good, they need seasoned and extra time to dry out. The flavours can be customised to taste, I added garlic granules and extra chilli. Will definitely add this in for a healthier snack maybe with a glass of wine.

Somehow didn't get the right texture with these - bit soggy...

Didn't have chili so used cayenne and paprika. Tasted ok, better when still warm.

Love peanuts spicy or plain, but these chickpeas are a very tasty alternative, never thought to try them before so thanks for the idea I will be experimenting more

These are lovely. Added some paprika for a different flavour and ate them all. Will definitely become a favourite. I did box them up quite quickly after they came out of the oven so they went a little soft but they were still just as nice

Just take these out of the oven and they are lovely. Added a bit more Chili as i like it hot and some ground black pepper to the mix. Great healthy snack!

Hi just wanted to know the oven settings as unable to find them. It looks a good recipe. I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and this looks a good alternative to crisps and nuts. Thank you Pat
