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 as a side note, I wanted to use chili powder to make them spicy and I didn’t have any!! So, are you sitting down….. I made my own… yup (this coming from a person who buys cinnamon sugar!!)

Crunchy (spicy) Baked Chickpeas


  • 2 (16-ounce) cans chickpeas, thoroughly drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Drain the chickpeas in a colander and rinse well.
  3. Lay the chickpeas out on a paper towel and pat dry – try to dry them out as much as possible.
  4. In a medium sized bowl Mix the oil and dry ingredients together until blended.
  5. Toss the chickpeas in the bowl with the other ingredients. Coat them well.
  6. Lay the chickpeas out on a baking tray in a single layer.
