Perfectly Dry Roasted Chickpeas

Sharing is caring!

Roasting these without oil or salts first lets them crisp up perfectly. Letting them cool in the oven is crucial to the crunch factor. Season with a teaspoon of your favourite flavours: combine sea salt with pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, chipotle, cayenne pepper, curry powder, lemon pepper, or anything you like.


  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • sea salt to taste


Spread chickpeas on paper towels; allow to air dry completely, about 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Spread chickpeas on prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 40 minutes, shaking pan every 10 minutes. Remove chickpeas from oven; toss with mixed spice and salt. Place chickpeas back into the oven; turn oven off until completely cold, about 2 hours or up to overnight.
