    These work, but for that temperature and time they turned out pretty brown, and grainy in texture. Granted, I used canned chickpeas (but I did shell them). I would recommend a lower temperature, maybe 300 degrees, for a longer time. That way you can still get the crispiness without the burnt taste.
