  • 1/2 can chickpeas
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika or ground paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper optional


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Drain the chickpeas and rinse with cold water. Place them in a large baking dish or a with parchment paper lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. → Use a large enough dish so that the chickpeas have place in one single layer and don't stack on each other. This is important to make them crispy.
  • Take them out of the oven, mix with the olive oil and spices, and bake for another 15 minutes until golden and crispy.
  • Turn off the oven, open the door ajar (stick a wooden spoon between the door and oven), and let the chickpeas cool down in the oven. → Makes them crispier!


  1. This is for 2 snacks, so half it for each snack
  2. Here is the directions to cook them in an air fryer if you choose to:
    Transfer the chickpeas to the air fryer basket. Set the timer to 15 minutes and 380F.
    Cook for 7 minutes, shake the basket once, cook for the rest of the time.
    Remove the chickpeas from the air fryer and add them to the bowl you used to toss them with oil. Spray with a little additional cooking spray to help the spices adhere to the chickpeas. Then add the spices and toss well.
