A delicious, high fiber snack, these roasted chickpeas are a crispy, crunchy alternative to bland, mushy chickpeas.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Blot chickpeas with a paper towel to dry them. In a bowl, toss chickpeas with olive oil, and season to taste with salt, garlic salt, and cayenne pepper, if using.

I patted dry the chickpeas and only oiled the baking sheet. Seasoned after baking. Turned out wonderful. Great healthy snack for on the go.

My kids kind of liked these but I did not care for them. They had a texture that just didn't work for me, quite grainy. Maybe I didn't cook them long enough? I might try again but don't see this being a regular snack at our house.

These were really good. I didn't measure the olive oil, but I'm sure I didn't use 2 TBS, probably closer to 1. I also added a dash of onion powder and a little pepper. I cooked for 30 min, shaking the pan every 10 min to mix them up. Mine turned out nice and crunchy. Be sure to pay attention to the part about "Watch carefully the last few minutes to avoid burning." I didn't and some time within the last 10 min, about 1/4 of mine burned.
