Crispy Chickpeas

I've been pretty hooked on this snack lately and wanted to share this ridiculously easy recipe with you!
Start with a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Rinse the beans really well in a colander and shake the excess water out.
Pour them onto a foil lined baking sheet and pat dry with paper towels. 
Drizzle on a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and bake in a 375 degree oven for 45-55 minutes until they are crispy. 
The center will be slightly soft but the outer shell is pure salty crispness that's just outstanding. I love to eat these as a snack when they are piping hot out of the oven (or fryer) but storing in an airtight container will keep it pretty crisp for a day or two. They tend to lose that crunch factor as leftovers so I'll toss them in a salad as a "crouton" and it's delicious!
It's a healthy simple treat!
