Crunchy (spicy) Baked Chickpeas

I am obsessed – I just made THE BEST snack ever!  Spicy crunchy baked chickpeas – but here’s the thing –  I despise chickpeas – hate them….. pick them off of my salad…. H.A.T.E.  But I L.O.V.E these!!   THE BEST news is that they are crazy easy to make!!!  I did it all by myself with NO support.  These remind me of corn nuts – which I love, but these are a much healthier option.

    Just made these oh so yummy chick peas. I didn’t have cumin so I just used salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili powder. I also used canola oil. OMG delicious is an understatement. Thank you for this wonderful recipe. We are addicted.

    what a neat idea. not fond of them either, but these look and sound delish! question, are these not the same beans that are used in garbanzo bean soup? i love that soup. funny, i hate peas, but love split pea soup, hate lemon in my water or tea, but just love lemonade!! same with the garbanzo bean soup, but dont like them on my salad or whatever. weird i know. anxious to try them! would have to add onion and garlic powders of course though. love them!
    (do you know how long they will last, if not eaten all up in the first days? thanks

    ha! I buy cinnamon/sugar combo too. Makes it so much easier…like a whole 1 minute faster every month! hahaha

    I hate the texture of chickpeas, never mind the flavour…but I’ve learned to like falafels if they’re blended very well. I’ve tried dried chickpeas and really enjoy them, but I haven’t made them myself. I’m pinning and adding extra chick peas to my grocery list that’s sitting in front of me :-)

    I’ve just made these and they were ready in 20 minutes, if I’d left them for the time stated they would have burned!

      Hi Sarah – I guess it depends on your oven – mine took every minute as directed. Thanks for your feedback!

    This seems like a recipe to finally get my kids eating whole chickpeas! My eldest likes it in the form of hummus only. I would make it less spicy though since they r kids. Thanks for sharing!
