2 tablespoons panko crumbs
- Preheat oven to 350ºF

NOTE 1: Having a dry chickpea is essential for the oil and seasoning to stick. Use several paper towels and make sure the chickpeas are fully dry before moving on to the next step.
NOTE 2: When rubbing the chickpeas, this action might loosen or remove some of the chickpea skins. Do not discard the skins! When coated in the seasoning and baked, these chickpea skins are so flavorful and crunchy – one of my favorite parts!
NOTE 3: While I love using the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning for this recipe, you can absolutely swap that seasoning for something else. Something like a Montreal Steak Seasoning or a Powdered Ranch Dressing Seasoning would be really tasty!
