Oven Baked Crispy Chickpeas (Oil Free)

These chickpeas are delicious, crunchy and nutritious! You only need to drain them and put them in the oven and then they’re done. I love making these chickpeas. They are so convenient to have at home when you want something healthy to snack on, if you want to add something crunchy in your salad or add some crunch in your meal.

These are made plain with no seasoning, but you can just add any spices you like when making them. Some of my favorite seasonings are:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Cumin
  • Salt
  • Cardamom

Don’t overtake these chickpeas, because then they will be dry and taste like paper. You only want the to get crunchy and have some color. So taste one every now and then. And remember to stir so they get baked evenly. They can be stored in a dry place for up to a month (or even longer), but mine has never lasted for so long.
