Roasted Chickpeas

Here is another easy, healthy snack.  It is made by slow roasting a can of chickpeas with some spices.  The result is crunchy, nutty goodness.  What a great way to include protein- and fiber-rich legumes in your diet!  (and it’s a safe, tasty snack for my son with a nut allergy!).

Roasted Chick Peas

16 ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoons paprika

½ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon cumin

Dash cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together salt and spices in a small bowl, set aside.  Pat chickpeas dry and place on a baking sheet.  Spray generously with non-stick spray.  Collect chickpeas and place in spice bowl.  Mix to evenly coat.  Spread out in a single layer on baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Stir and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp.

  1. I tried a similar recipe recently, but they didn’t seem to crisp up quite enough. Guess they needed a bit more oven time?
    Also, how long do they last in a sealed container?
    Thanks!

  2. Hi, Denise. I can’t answer the time that these would last in a sealed container because they are eaten too quickly in my house. My guess would be 3-4 days in a sealed container if they were cooked until crisp and cooled before storing. Enjoy!
