Great recipe! I make a variety of dressings (cayenne pepper, chilli powder and salt/ honey, cumin, cayenne pepper and lemon juice/ caramel/ oil, garlic and rosemary etc...) and use them instead of popcorn, croutons and even find them great crushed and used instead of breadcrumbs for au gratins or crumbed chicken!!
Wow! These are a really amazing snack. I told my 2 year old (who eats only pb sandwiches and goldfish crackers) that it was popcorn and he gobbled it down! DH loved it too - I'm making a huge batch of this to snack on throughout the week. Thank you!
Great snack and healthy too. The only thing I did differently was to mix spices in a sandwich or quart freezer bag and put chickpeas in the bag to coat. The chickpeas are evenly coated and you just throw the bag out when finished. Thanks for the simple but tasty recipe.
