Roasted Chickpeas

Crunchy roasted chickpeas are one of my fave snacks of all time.

They are:

  • dairy-free
  • gluten-free
  • sugar-free
  • full of fiber
  • filling
  • nutritious
  • delicious

Roasted chickpeas are much more nutritious than pretzels and chips.  They’re also cheaper and super easy to make, too. 🙌🏼  I shared my roasted chickpea recipe on Instagram and everyone loved it so I wanted to share it with you, too.

Roasted Chickpea Recipe


  • 2 cans of organic chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • seasonings of choice (keep reading for suggested spices)
  • 2 tsp of sea salt

Preheat your oven to 400. Drain and rinse 2 cans of (organic) chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) and pat dry.

Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and toss with 2 tbsp of olive oil and spices of your choice until they’re evenly coated.

I like using cumin and cayenne to taste. You could also use garlic powder, 🌮 taco or fajita seasoning.

Salt is a MUST for dehydrating the beans so they’ll crunch. 💃🏻 I use about 1/2 tsp of salt and they’re perfect.

Then spread the chickpeas in an even layer on a baking sheet and bake at 400 until they’re crispy… which takes about 30 to 45+ minutes.

I always do a ‘taste’ test at the 30-minute mark to gauge the crunch level.  The chickpeas should crunch, not feel waxy or soft.

Depending on the crunch level, I let em bake a bit longer.  If your chickpeas don’t feel crunchy after 30 minutes, you can bump up the temperature to 425 and watch them.

When they’re just about ready they should split a little bit, like this…

When they’re done, remove from the oven and enjoy immediately.

These lil babies are perfect for football game snacking, smuggling into movie theaters, 😬 and for road trips/plane rides. 🙌🏼
