Chickpeas are packed with natural protein and fiber, making them the perfect snack to hold you over in between meals. These nutrient-dense munchies are loaded with iron, phosphorus, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, magnesium and zinc. Did we mention they’re absolutely tasty too!

You’ll Need:
2 (15 oz.) cans chickpeas a.k.a. garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained (or 3 cups of prepared beans)
2 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp Madras curry powder
1 tsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tsp chili powder (we use Chipotle chili powder)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper

If you’re using canned chickpeas, rinse the chickpeas thoroughly and if you happen to have a salad spinner, give them a whirl to remove any excess water. If you don’t happen to have one (you should seriously Get one!) you can place them on a paper towel or lint-free cloth and let them dry for about 10 minutes before continuing.

Combine all of the seasonings in a small bowl and set aside. Transfer the well drained (dry) chickpeas to a bowl or gallon size zip-close bag. Add the olive oil, turn/fold the beans to ensure they are all evenly coated. Sprinkle the seasoning mix over the beans, again turn/fold to ensure they are evenly coated with seasoning.

Transfer them to a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or foil. Be sure they are in a single layer on the tray.

Bake at 400F for 35-40 minutes, or until they are crispy.

Note: Failure to drain the chickpeas will result in mushy snacks instead of crispy snacks.

  1. We don’t do canned beans, only dried. So should I soak and cook before proceeding?

    I’m not awake yet. These look amazing. Time to soak some beans!
