Crunchy Chickpea Snacks

I came across a recipe for these years ago, made them, loved them, then promptly forgot about them. But today, while purusing the cupboards for something snacky and coming up short, I somehow remembered how good these were.

Crunchy little bite sized snacks that are so versatile and absolutely delicious. My kids quickly relieved us of any leftovers.


2 cans chickpeas, drained well
olive oil
2 tbsp. multi-seasoning mix (like Mrs. Dash)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp chili powder

In a bowl, combine the chickpeas and seasonings. Drizzle with enough olive oil to coat and toss well. Pour mixture onto a cookie sheet so that it sits in a single layer.  Bake at 400 degrees, turning occassionally, until crispy (about 45 minutes).

Other ideas I have but haven't yet tried:

BBQ: brown sugar, olive oil, mesquite seasoning
Spicy: red pepper flakes, oil, chili powder, cumin
honey mustard: oil, honey, mustard
Pizza: tomato sauce, oil, italian seasoning, parmesan cheese
