- Say goodbye to popcorn because chickpeas are the new hot movie food. I'm gonna show you how to make these with a Old Bay spice, salty, crunchy, such good things and they're irresistible when watching a movie. Let's do it. Alright, so let's start here. Chickpeas are a staple in my house because they're so easy to just keep in your pantry. You pop 'em out when you want them. Throw 'em in salad, you can make stews with them, you can make any kind of seasoned chickpea you like but this combo is my absolute favorite lately. So simple. A little bit of olive oil, and that's gonna help get this nice and crispy. And we have some maple syrup, which will just sweeten it up ever so slightly. And a little bit of salt. And the star of the show, which is our Old Bay Seasoning. So Old Bay Seasoning is really classically used in seafood but it really is a beautiful spice mixture. It has some cayenne in there for some heat. It's so good, paprika. I love it in these chickpeas. It makes 'em really, really flavorful and kind of irresistible. And we know they're a nice healthy alternative to a chip or something because they're just full of protein. Really just flavorful and I love adding these to salads as well. It makes a really nice crunchy crouton in a way. That's the whole thing. It's so incredibly simple it's a joke. These are really great to have on hand. So your just putting on your baking sheet and we're going to bake these for about an hour or so on 350 degrees. You want them to be on a single layer so the air can really circulate and get them all nice and crunchy. Alright, we're going to go pop this in the oven and we're gonna take them out when they're nice, crunchy and cool. Let's go. Okay, these are smelling awesome! I have let them cool for an hour. And they're nice and crunchy. You hear that? And these are a really great alternative to bring to a movie or if you're just going out for the day. You're running errands, you want a little something to munch on throughout the day, grab this instead of your chips and you will be really happy. Say goodbye to your chips. It's all about the chickpeas guys. Bye.
