Eat healthier Spicy Baked Chickpeas

Personal trainer says “Not chips! Spicy Baked Chickpeas”


If you’re craving something crunchy, salty, and spicy put down the potato chips! These baked chickpeas will satisfy your craving for something to munch on, give you an extra boost of fiber and won’t leave you with that, ‘I can’t believe I just ate that’, feeling.  Experiment with different spice mixtures, or for a sweet take on this recipe bake the chickpeas plain, and while still hot mix with two teaspoons of honey and a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.  Enjoy! 

INGREDIENTS1 15 oz. can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1/2 teaspoon olive oil (that’s all you need, I swear!)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon of spice mixture (I used garlic, chili powder, cumin and hot paprika)
Make sure the chickpeas are completely dry after draining and rinsing them. Otherwise they’ll end up chewy and soggy.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Drain and rinse chickpeas in a colander. Pat dry.
  3. Toss chickpeas in a medium sized bowl with olive oil, sea salt, and spices.
  4. Arrange chickpeas on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes or until crispy. While baking, shake pan or stir chickpeas every 10 minutes to avoid burning.
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl, or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
