Ingredients

  • 16 oz can of chickpeas (Drained, rinsed and patted dry.)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (can also use vegetable oil)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drain and rinse your chickpeas.
  • Grab a lined baking sheet and spread the chickpeas out on it. Make sure they're not too close together. Bake for thirty minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, take the chickpeas out of the oven and put them in a large bowl. Add the oil, spices and soy sauce and stir well so the chickpeas are well coated.
  • Bake for 10-15 more minutes. Check on them to make sure they don't burn.
  • Let them cool a bit before eating them. They get crispier once they cool.
  • Store in an open bowl, right on the counter. If you put a lid on them, they become less crunchy. They will last about a week.

Notes

  • Use an oil with a high smoking point. I love to use avocado oil, or vegetable oil. Olive oil isn't great for high heat.
  • I love using a tsp of soy sauce because it adds depth of flavor to the chickpeas and a little more saltiness.
  • You can eat these as a snack, or you can also use them as a crunchy and salty salad topper. They make a great replacement for croutons.
  • Feel free to mix and match your seasonings. 
  • If the chickpeas are a little dry, add an extra teaspoon of oil. 
  • Other seasoning idea: Use 1 tsp each of curry powder and cumin. Add salt to taste.
  • If you want these to be a bit healthier, only use 1 tablespoon of oil. They may turn out a bit dry though, so be aware of that.
