Tips For the Crispiest Crunchy Chickpeas
- If you use a can of garbanzo beans, make sure you drain, wash and pat the beans until dry. This will allow them to get crispier and remove some of the extra starch and sodium.
- Cooking the chickpeas in the oven and skillet will allow them to get extra crispy and absorb all the flavors and seasonings.
How To Store Them
Warm chickpeas taste best since they are very crunchy. However, you can also store them in a glass, airtight container. They will remain crispy for up to a day or two, and they can last up to a week.
You can even use homemade Za’atar spice mix with these crunchy snacks to elevate your taste buds.
