crunchy bbq roasted chic peas

i have a confession…i am a big fan of crunchy snacks! 
i also like that added crunch in some main dishes or salads.

so when i kept seeing this idea in multiple magazines i had to try it for two reasons. 
one i love chic peas and two, it's a healthier option to the chips i enjoy so much but refuse to buy.
i was not disappointed… these were great and really you can add what ever flavoring you would like. i will post the different flavors i try on here. but here is the first one we tried.

15 oz. can of chickpeas rinsed and well dried
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon bbq rub 

1. pre-heat oven to 250 degrees..i roast them slow so they do not burn. toss chickpeas with olive oil and bbq rub in a large boll. i use one with a lid so i can shake it.

2. place in a single layer on a cookie sheet or shallow baking pan and roast for about 35 minutes or until crunchy. stirring once halfway through.

tip: The dryer they are before this process the crunchier they will get in the oven.

since posting this i have tried:
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
garlic and sea salt
spicy cayenne
