Recipe Steps

You won’t believe how easy it is to make roasted chickpeas! All you need are canned chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans), coconut oil, and some spices. You can get creative with the spices that you add to your roasted garbanzo beans, but I like to use Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and onion powder. Plus, I always add a little sea salt to add more flavor.

Sometimes I like to make a variation of this recipe and use dried dill and dried parsley in addition to the Italian seasoning. It really just depends on which dried herbs you like the most.

Step One

Drain and rinse your chickpeas. Pat them dry to make sure they get really crispy in the oven.

Step Two

Toss them with the oil and spices.

Step Three

Bake them for 45 minutes at 400 degrees.

Step Four

Let them cool slightly before serving. Or, let them cool completely for ultimate crispiness.
