Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

I love these chickpeas as a snack or tossed onto a big crisp salad...

Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed, then drained really well and laid out on a paper towel so they are dry
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp spice mix (I use za'atar usually but you can use fajita spice mix, creole spice mix, etc.)
1/4  -1/2 tsp sea salt

While chickpeas are draining, combine oil and spices with salt in a bowl.
Add chickpeas and toss them in a bowl to coat.
Spread out on a parchment lined cookie sheet
Bake for 30 minutes at 400
Then keep the oven on and take chickpeas out of the oven to cool for 10 minutes
Bake another 10-15 minutes at 400
Allow to cool before eating
