Gather ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 F. 

To spice the peas: In a medium bowl, combine the chickpea flour and all of the spices (chili, onion, and garlic powders) and salt. 
Add the water and whisk until there aren't any lumps. 
Add peas to the bowl and stir well to coat with the spiced mixture. 

To roast the peas: Spread peas into a single layer on a baking sheet. 
Bake at 350F for about 60-70 min. 
Stir every 15-20 minutes. 
Cook until chickpeas are crunchy. 

For a crunchier texture, turn the oven up to 400 and cook for an extra 8-10 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and let cool on the sheet pan at least 10 minutes before storing. 

Store in a bowl on your counter and crunch away!

Chef's Tips: Chili powder adds a spicy kick, but you can swap out with other spices like wasabi powder or smoked paprika.
