Clean Eating Roasted Chickpeas

  • Yield: servings


3cups cooked chickpeas (canned or made fresh)
1tablespoon garlic powder
1tablespoon onion powder
1tablespoon cumin
2teaspoons chili powder
1/2teaspoon salt
1tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread the beans out over a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 40-60 minutes being sure to stir at 10 minute intervals. The longer you cook these, the crunchier they will get. But watch them closely so they do not burn. 40 minutes produces a softer, chewier bean and 60 will give you a crunchy bean.
  4. Allow to cool and serve.
