The Best Roasted Chickpeas

A little packet of roasted chickpeas? $2! A can? 92 CENTS! Healthy snacks are cool but cheap healthy snacks that don’t take that long to prep? Even cooler!

This roasted chickpeas recipe is super easy and you can make them a million different ways. Start it off by simply draining and rinsing your chickpeas. You can make however many cans you want, I usually like to make 3 at a time and that pretty much fills a standard baking sheet.

Once your chickpeas are rinsed you’ll wanna take out a hairdryer or torch and dry each one individually. No, not really. I’m joking. Seriously, don’t do that. All you have to do is dump them on a baking sheet. Line it with parchment paper for easy clean up and give them a quick pat dry…or don’t, it really doesn’t matter.

Almost done

Most people will season them before the oven but they come out way crunchier by putting them in first and seasoning them last so throw those in the oven on 400F/204C for 35 minutes. Move them around a bit after 15-20 minutes.

While those are in the oven we’re gonna prepare a couple different seasonings. Like I said earlier, you can make these roasted chickpeas a million different ways and that begins with this next part.

All you need to remember here is that you need at least 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil per can used when mixing with seasonings. This could be sunflower oil, avocado, peanut, or like I’m using today olive oil. It’s completely up to you.

You’ll wanna choose your favorite seasonings or experiment and make a couple new ones to try. I list my a few of my favorites below!

After you’ve got your seasonings ready you just wanna toss your roasted chickpeas around in them until they look like they’re evenly coated. Use 1 seasoning for all of them or break it up like we did today with 3.

DON’T EAT THEM YET! Toss them back in the oven on 400F/204C for another 15 minutes and you’ll get something like this…

Delicious, macro friendly, super easy to make, and more than affordable roasted chickpeas. Let me know what seasonings you guys come up with or use in the comments!

Those little mix packets down your salad dressing aisle work awesome for the ranch seasoning ones. You could make your own too but I’d imagine not everyone has or wants to buy all of the ingredients needed.
