Coconut Lime Roasted Chickpeas

I like to cruise pinterest searching for healthy vegan or vegetarian nom-noms- and in my wanderings, I stumbled upon this recipe for Coconut Lime Roasted Chickpeas. I had to try it! Doesn't the name just sound so scrumptious?? So today, I whipped up a batch of these puppies. The verdict? Disappointment. They sounded so good, they looked so good, they smelled so good...but...I think the lime taste was too strong for me. I'm more of a coconut fan, and wanted more of a tropical flavor to them. I have to admit that the texture and crunch was pretty awesome; and there's a definite possibility I will make these again- but I will be playing around with the flavors.

This picture is from the original site,the recipe is also from there,
with a few of my own adaptations
