Oven Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas + Olive Oil + Spices =

Crunchy, Healthy, Savory, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Nut-free, Homemade Snack!

This recipe is perfect for when you are hungry for a crunchy snack, after school, while watching football, or as an addition to a lazy Sunday brunch, even on top of a salad instead of croutons.  The possibilities are endless.  I have one teenage vegetarian here that waits by the oven for these to turn brown so he can eat them immediately.

How to make them perfectly crunchy every time:

  • dry the peas first before applying the oil and spices, follow the baking process in the recipe
  • eat them right away, they lose their crunch if you wait
  • if you have to pre-cook these, toss them back in the oven under a low broiler for 2-3 minutes to get the crunch back
  • don’t like garlic or cayenne? try turmeric or onion or cumin or even cinnamon … can’t mess these little guys up with any spice, just throw something different on there each time to change it up
  • don’t have dry beans but you have cans, use them!

Hope you love these as much as the hungry vegetarians in this house! Let me know how they turn out!!

Instructions
Cooking Dried Garbanzo Beans in Instant Pot
  1. Rinse chickpeas in a strainer under cool water for 30 seconds

Roasting Chickpeas in Oven
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Place chickpeas in a single layer on baking sheet
  3. Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven
  4. Transfer chickpeas to a bowl and add olive oil, salt, garlic powder, and cayenne or chili pepper powder (to taste). Stir until each tiny little pea is coated with oil and seasoning.
  5. Place chickpeas back on baking sheet and place in 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. *Oven times vary* Watch your peas and remove from oven when golden brown, taste one for crunch and they are done. I tested these in 2 different ovens and they required 2 different cook times 5 minutes apart.
  6. Remove from oven, and enjoy immediately!
