      These are an awesome, healthy, crunchy snack! My toddler loves them! Play around with the amount of oil you use and how long you bake to get the texture you like. I've found if you use too little oil, they are a dry crunchy that turns a bit sandy in you mouth. Too much oil, and you have to spread them on paper towels to soak it up. You basicly are frying them in the oil in the oven. I double the lentils but still only use about 2-3 T of oil and bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15. If you find you didn't get them crunchy enough after cooling, just pop them back in and they will crisp up for you. Everyone I've shared them with (and that's a lot), likes them!

      I was very skeptical but I had some lentils I had to use up today so I gave this a shot and I'm so glad I did! Love it!! They taste like unpopped popcorn kernel, which I LOVE but I hate eating because I'm always worried I'll break a tooth. These are great, thanks for sharing the recipe :)

      What a great snack! I added a 1/2 tsp of fenugreek and a 1/2 tsp of tarragon just for fun. These really turned out well. GREAT flavor.
