Crispy Roasted Chickpeas are a healthy, homemade snack. They are easy to make and use few ingredients. Vegan and gluten-free, this is a crowd-pleasing recipe!

I have a love for chickpeas. Whether blended into hummus or smashed into chickpea salad, this healthy member of the legume family is versatile in its use. For this recipe, I decided to season and roast them.


Say hello to your new favorite snack: crispy roasted chickpeas. These crunchy, delicious bites are perfectly spiced and delightfully snackable. Ready in just 25 minutes, this simple snack is a healthy alternative to the usual, boring potato chip.


Ingredients


This delectable, healthy snack is made with just three elements: canned chickpeas, oil, and spices.


  • Chickpeas (garbanzo beans) – One 15.5oz can
  • Olive Oil
  • Spices – Salt, paprika, garlic powder


How to Make Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Preheat Oven – This process is a simple one. It all starts by preheating the oven to 425° F. Next, line a baking sheet tray with parchment paper.


Prep the Chickpeas – Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Spread them onto a kitchen towel or layer of paper towels and pat them dry. (Remove any loose skins.)


Season – Transfer the {dried} chickpeas to a small bowl. Toss them in ½ tbsp of olive oil and spices. *Add more oil, as needed, to ensure spices stick to the chickpeas. Do not exceed 1 tbsp of olive oil.


Bake – Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until the chickpeas are golden brown and crisp. If you’d like them crispier, bake for 5-10 minutes more.


Recipe Tips


  • Have fun with the seasonings! The flavor options for roasted chickpeas are ultimately endless. Some of my favorite spices to use include onion powder, cumin, black pepper, cayenne, and smoked paprika (in place of the regular). Or you can keep it simple and season with a pinch of nice sea salt.
  • You can use other oils to make this snack too. While this recipe uses olive oil, most oils will do well in this recipe. My other go-to oil is avocado oil for its health benefits and neutral flavor.
  • Season the chickpeas with additional spices after baking. Sample a few roasted chickpeas and season them to your desired taste preference. Toss them in the additional spices while still warm.
  • Sprinkle a serving of these roasted chickpeas over a bowl of dressed greens. They make the perfect salad topper!
