This was awesome! I can't believe how much my kids (who never eat lentils) LOVED it! Thank you!!!

A great snack! It has protein, crunchiness, frugality, and versatility. I think starting with dried lentils is a must so that they don't cook all the way before roasting. As others have said, chili powder is a nice addition, as is cumin and black pepper. Thank you, thank you!

Very yummy. Like a version of what Israelis call "bisli," except this one is healthy (the other has MSG and I won't let the kids eat it!) Also subbed Olive oil for the canola. Worked just fine. I cooked lentils as usual (1 C lentils to slightly less than 2 C. water) and just let them cook as normal. Thanks. Make sure to make a double batch! Probably great for car rides, too.

I love these. Some of us are allergic to nuts and seeds, we cannot eat processed foods, too many sunflower oils. This helps. I also took some of the other reviewers' advise and only sprayed oil. Thank you.

Nice snack. Better for you than some! I under cooked these a bit and then turned the oven off, leaving them in for another 10 minutes or so. This allowed them to absorb the remaining heat (leave the kitchen cooler over summer) and let them finish without burning. They had a light 'sandy' type of texture yet each lentil held together. Similar texture to 'sandies' cookies- NOT taste just texture. Would make these again!

I was thoroughly shocked. The wife didn't like them so much but I do. Burn a few on a second sheet pan. A very interesting snack.

These were great! They far exceeded my expectations. We will certainly be making them often. We made them exactly as written this time, but we are excited to try different spices in the future. Thanks for the recipe.

I don't know what it is about this recipe, but I just could not get the lentils to crisp up. I must have had them in the oven for at least 40 minutes and finally pulled them out because I had to leave. Doesn't make too much difference, though, DH and I both think these are pretty great tasting and a good post-run snack for us. I, too, just used a couple of quick sprays of PAM instead of the oil to cut down on needless calories and can't wait to try other spice blends (or even just some kosher salt). Thanks for posting!

I was pretty skeptical before trying these, but they are AWESOME! I can't wait to experiment a bit more with the spice flavours on them. These really satisfy my craving for something snackable. Even my husband was surprised by how much he liked them. Thank you for posting this great recipe!

Loved these. I miss my potato chips. These gave me something to crunch on.
