NOTE: Pictured is also a chick pea snack. These were canned chick peas - liquid removed and dried as much as possible - tossed in some olive oil and seasoning of choice (ex: taco seasoning, chili seasoning, maple syrup/salt) - baked on a cookie sheet at 350 until crispy - stir periodically. About 1/2 hour. Enjoy!
