Hi!  It has occurred to me that it might be possible to season and oven-roast fresh snow peas, to make a good snack.   I'm thinking that I would lay them out flat on a cookie sheet, sprinkle with some coarse salt and other spices, and bake until crisp.  But I don't have a lot of experience in the kitchen.  Can anyone with more practical knowledge make some suggestions about oven temperature and length of time for cooking?  Also, other suggestions of healthier alternatives to potato chips would be greatly appreciated.

they sell weird little potato chip makers for the microwave--basically a circular thingie with a bunch of slots and you can put thin slices of whatever in them.  my mom picked up a couple at some thrift shop or something and we made sweet potato chips that were super good...just thin-sliced with a mandolin and then microwaved for five minutes or something.  we sprinkled ours with salt and then baked in the oven for a moment or two to fully crisp up, but we didn't add any oil or anything and they were very tasty.  we also did carrots that were yummy.
i've had the freeze-dried snap peas from cost plus before and they are super tasty, but i have no idea how they get them that way...

i do green beans like you describe, so i'm sure it would work for snow peas. just make sure to oil the cookie sheet a little so they don't get stuck.

other healthy savory snacks:

air-popped popcorn (i like to put olive oil and tamari on it, or my mum's kickass vinaigrette)
baked sweet potato fries/chips
rice crackers
edamame (freeze-dried beans in the pod)
