We baked these for 60 minutes and they DID crisp up after, so I think 50-55 might be plenty. We felt the cinnamon overpowered the sugar and would add more sugar next time, but I think we would like these better as a savory snack. I think I will try that, with maybe cajun or garlic or something like that. Thanks for the idea!
Nice healthy snack! Made half recipe and wished I had made a full recipe. The only change I made was to use Splenda for baking in place of sugar. Did heed another reviewers comments about making sure as to not leave the chickpeas to wet or they will not turn out. Did bake the full 60 minutes for a nice crisp little pea. Thanks so much for the post.
The first time around I totally destroyed these - I think I left them too wet and then I also burnt them. The second time around they turned out great and my husband was surprised it was the same recipe. What a fun little treat plus tons of protein. Thanks a bunch!! Made for Veggie Swap 23!!
This was awesome! I never would've thought to use a sweet seasoning on chickpeas. I used a premade cinnamon-sugar and just sprinkled it on rather than measuring it, and some sea salt. They roasted nicely for 45 minutes in my convection oven. Next time I might use honey instead of sugar because honey and cinnamon have superpower health benefits when combined together, plus a great taste. This is a wonderful high-protein low-fat snack that would be a great replacement for chips or something! Made in support of you and your hubby!
This recipe has possibilities. I had to use a 19oz can chickpeas, so I increased the seasonings by 25% to start. I then increased the cinnamon by an extra teaspoon, but if you like a more distinct cinnamon flavour I would increase it more. The one thing I had a problem with was the crispness of the chickpeas. After 1hr, they were still chewy, so I left them in 12 minutes more (checking in 3 minute increments). They were perfect when I rem'd them, but I didn't know they got "harder" as they "cooled". I am going to try them again & remove after 1hr & see how they go after they cool off. I can always put them back in the oven! Made for Everyday Holiday Tag-Dec'09.
Fun snack! Next time I will leave out the salt and add more sugar/cinnamon. Super easy to make and the house smells wonderful :)
This is SO delicious, healthy and easy. I can't believe I never thought of it because I love chickpeas. A GREAT protein "take along" Kids LOVE weird concepts like "Rattle Snakes". Rattlesnake Eggs are what I'll call them. Thanks SO much Sharon123!!!
