Substitutions
Substitute another white bean for chickpeas like Northern, cannellini, or Navy beans.

If making the chickpeas ahead of time, make and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to one month.

Traditional Oven Directions
Heat oven to 170 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Evenly space chickpeas along the baking sheet and dehydrate them for 4–6 hours, tossing halfway through.
