Perfectly Roasted Chickpeas

I love making my own roasted chickpea snacks. After lots of practice I have finally mastered the cook time to get the perfect crunch! I have discovered that the key to getting the chickpeas crunchy everytime is to place them in the oven while it is still preheating.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1-2 cans chickpeas (540mL cans)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or olive oil spray
  • Optional: ground sea salt or paprika/chili powder or cinnamon sugar

Directions:

  1. Rinse and drain chickpeas.
  2. Pour the chickpeas onto a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil or spray with olive oil. Distribute evenly.
  3. Turn the oven to bake at 425F. Place the chickpeas in the cool oven.
  4. Bake for 40 minutes. Mix the chickpeas regularly to ensure even roasting.
  5. Remove from the chickpeas from the oven and allow to cool for 45-60 minutes.
  6. After cooling, you can add ground sea salt, chili powder, paprika, cinnamon sugar…whatever you feel like to season! My favourite way to eat these is with just a little bit of ground sea salt. I also use these as salad toppers to add a crunch.
