Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

Author: Toni Anderson


  • 1 15.5 ounce can chickpeas or garbanzo beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Dry well using paper towels. Discard any loose skins.
  • Put chickpeas in a small bowl and coat them evenly with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the chickpeas into a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Shake the pan several times throughout the baking. Towards the end of roasting, you want to check on the chickpeas often as they can burn quickly.
  • Allow the chickpeas to cool in the pan after removing from the oven.


Spicy: Use 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon chili, pinch of cayenne, salt, and pepper. Honey Cinnamon: Use 1 tablespoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon honey.
