Crispy Baked Chickpeas Recipe: A Healthy Topping or Craveable Snack

I made these chickpeas for an amazing cucumber salad that I made for guests the other night. These spiced chickpeas are such an easy and crunchy addition to any salad, but are also wonderful eaten on their own as a snack

Roasted chickpeas are simple to make. Here's your shopping list to make these crunchy chickpeas (most may already be in your spice rack!): canned chickpeas, paprika, ground cumin, sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and extra-virgin olive oil. The chickpeas are coated in the spices and olive oil and baked until golden and crunchy.

Try these baked chickpeas on salads or to add a crunch to any dish. The chickpeas would be delicious on baked potatoes, hummus, creamy dips or as part of a charcuterie board. They are also a great, healthy snack in between meals.

Recipe Notes

  • Change the spices based on what kind of flavor you like.
  • For the best results, make sure the chickpeas are thoroughly dry before baking.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Drain chickpeas, rinse with cool water and place them on a paper towel and pat dry. Air dry them for 10 minutes to help make them extra crispy.
  2. After 10 minutes combine chickpeas in a medium-sized bowl with seasonings and oil and toss to combine. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes until brown and crispy.
