Roasted Chickpeas

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 1 15- oz can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • spices of your choice to taste *


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Rinse and drain the canned chickpeas.
  • Lay the chickpeas out on a tea towel or paper towel and rub until dry. You want to get the chickpeas as dry as possible.
  • Transfer to a bowl and toss with the olive oil, and salt.
  • Transfer the chickpeas to the baking sheet and spread the chickpeas around. Try not to crowd the pan. You want to give them as much room as possible.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove from the oven and toss with spices of your choice.** Once tossed, place the tray back in the oven.
  • Turn the oven off and allow the chickpeas to sit in the oven while it cools off, or for about 20-30 minutes. This step helps them get even crispier. I like to keep the oven door open a crack while it's cooling down.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely before transferring to an airtight container.


*I like to use Mrs. Dash no salt added Chipotle seasoning, but paprika, garlic, or even curry powders work great.
**I like to add my spices once the cooking process has completed. Spices can burn easily and burnt spices do not taste good.
