Roasted chickpeas with 3 variations for a tasty snack! 



Spicy roasted chickpeas

  • 1 can chickpeas (14oz
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika 
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp pepper  
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 

Chilli lime roasted chickpeas 

  • 1 can chickpeas (14oz
  • 1 tbsp lime zest
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 

Sweet and salty roasted chickpeas 

  • 1 can chickpeas (140z) 
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp oil 


  1. For the spicy roasted chickpeas and chilli lime roasted chickpeas: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking pan with parchment paper. Pat the chickpeas dry with a paper towel then toss in a bowl with the seasoning. Spread the chickpeas on the baking pan and bake for 35-45 minutes until golden brown and crispy. 
  2. *For the sweet and salty roasted chickpeas: Place the plain chickpeas in the oven to roast for 25 minutes, then remove and toss with the seasoning and place them back in the oven for 15 minutes. (*I find the maple syrup or sugar coating can sometimes burn in the oven, so this will prevent that from happening!) 


Make sure to really pat your chickpeas dry before seasoning. This will help them get nice and crispy! 

Spread the chickpeas out evenly on your baking sheet so that none of them are touching. 

If you take your chickpeas out of the oven and realize they are not crispy and crunchy enough, simply put them back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes. (keep an eye on them so they don’t burn!)  

Using parchment paper on your pan will help reduce your clean up time!

Store in an airtight container on your countertop for up to 2 weeks. 

*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for all 3 variations. The sweet and salty variation will have an additional 3g of sugar per serving.
