Finally came to type in the recipe and thought i will just google first to see if someone can save me the time of typing and sure enough - it was online all along

if you want any recipe you see in a book etc always google it as often a blogger has tried it and posted about it. surprised i got the 1st hit as recipezaar though.  sorry i took so long

Working on those toasted chick peas you mentioned, Deb, from the Sneaky Chef.  Excited to see how they turn out. :)

Hmm . . . well the toasted chickpeas got mixed reviews here.  DS put one in his mouth, get the strangest look on his face and said, "My don't like it."  Then a few minutes he put several more in his mouth, started chewing and again said, "My don't like it" and then spit them out.  ::)

I think the taste good--a nice crunch--but they are a lot of work to chew and DS has texture issues.  DH tasted them and was not a fan, but he's averse to anything that might have any redeeming nutritional value.  ::)

I can see them being a really nice crunchy snack for me in the afternoons . . . will have to see how I feel as I finish off the rest of this batch.  Bummed that they didn't go over better with DS.

well i made both yesterday - liv was eating the chickpeas with the mixture befo0re they went in the oven and liked them. i kept checking them but lost track as it still had ages to go according to the recipe and then they were yuck! inedible, small and shriveled.  how long did yours cook for before you took them out?

the crackers on heother hand came out great - taste just like the cheesy crackers you buy in the states that if i remember correctly are called Nibs???  of course alex did not like them and she is the d@mn reason i do all this.

so i keep at it!

I cooked mine for about an hour, but I opened the oven to shake them around 3-4 times also.

i made the oatmeal and french toast (with pumpkin) and it was a hit.....

deb, i know you posted this last year but what is the recipe for the cheesy crackers you made? i'm trying to find a substitute for goldfish crackers that doesn't have autolyzed yeast or MSG.

hi there- am overseas until end july but will have a look when i unpack the house when we move in ... might take a little while but definitely by 1st week in august sometime.  might try making them again as we have had a tough go on this 3 mo trip with pickiness driving me insane. alex has promised to go back to basics and try lots of foods when we return as i have explained again (3 1/2 yrs in now) how important it is to have variety.  we will see
