This super-easy crunchy snack reminds us of spiced nuts - perfect for the movies, a mid-afternoon snack or in place of croutons in salads.

What a great, healthy snack. I took the note of jcmt and baked for 45 minutes, turning beans with a spatula every 15 minutes, and any longer would have resulted in burned chickpeas. I'll try cooking for a shorter time until I find what I consider perfect. I'll start doing this recipe a couple times a week, I'm sure, and I'll share these snacks with friends. Thanks much, Jan
