chickpeas : soaked way too many-how soon do they have to be frozen to be saved?

I soaked my chickpeas and realized afterwards I had soaked about 3 times the number I could cook at 1 time. I didn't know until reading some posts on this site and another new site I found today I could have frozen them. I just drained them and refrigerated until I have the heart to toss them. How long could they refrigerate before freezing or have to be tossed?
Thanks for helping. I get tired of tossing my "good intentions".

Good question. How long has it been? Days? Weeks? Months? If they are refrigerated, 3 days is what Dr Google says. I have kept mine up to a week, but that's me. I eat raw eggs (from healthy pastured hens) too, so take me with a grain of salt.

You should have fried up some falafel, or roasted them! The issue is they begin to ferment...Personally I dont like freezing beans, the texture changes too much for my liking.

I have great luck freezing beans. I soak them, sprout them, cook them and then freeze them. I wonder if sprouting makes a difference? Sometimes, I freeze them after sprouting them and before cooking them. The texture is always great.
