Made these today however I think the prep time of 10 minutes needs adjusting. Took me about 25 minutes to peel the chickpeas, not sure if there’s a quicker method? Also baked as per instructions and they weren’t ‘extra crunchy’ which was a little disappointing. Tasted good though!

Easiest way to peel them is to grab a hand full and gently rub them in your hands the skins just fall off then just pick them out easy takes me. About 5 mins

@simhazel sorry don't pick them out put them on your baking tray then when there done you can just pick the chic peas out and avoid the skin but I have found that if I leave the skin on thay are more crispy becos the skin it self turns crispy
