Roasted Chickpeas

I'm still on my quest for a cheap healthy snack. The baked edamame was okay....I think I needed to bake it a little longer and the parmesan cheese coating didn't stick very well. These chickpeas were the bomb dot com! They were crispy and the spicy coating stayed on well. They did not keep well, a bit gummy the next day, so only make as many as you need. The spice was perfect, I couldn't stop munching on them!
Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
(pinterest find!)
1 can chickpeas
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, depending on tastes
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Preheat oven to 400.
2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well coated.
3. Spread chickpeas on a baking pan and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. Stir and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, or until chickpeas are crispy.


  1. Made the recipe but used a different baking time from another recipe. Still were soft the next day. :(

    I used the lower end of the cayenne. Next time I will up it.

    Nice alternative to sitting and eating chips.
