Spiced Chickpea "Nuts"

Submitted by: CKBYMOMMY

Introduction

From Eating Well Magazine, October 2009. These need more time than the recipe called for, so play around with it. They also need more flavor, I'm thinking a little cayenne? I did use the 'no salt added' can of beans, so that may be why they aren't as flavorful as I had hoped.
They are a filling snack and easy to throw in your purse, though, so play around with the flavors and the cooking time and see what you come up with.
