Crunchy Spiced Chickpeas


  • 1 12-14oz can chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 400º. Rinse and drain the chickpeas well so excess water is not added to the bowl. Toss all ingredients in a bowl, then bake on a baking sheet for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and crunchy, turning them halfway through (spread them out on a large baking sheet so they have room to cook and are not crowded). Let cool and serve warm or room temperature.
