  • 15 oz Canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Drain and rinse chickpeas and allow to dry on paper towels. Pat chickpeas with paper towel to help remove moisture. This will loosen the clear "skins" on chickpeas-you may discard these if desired.
  • In a medium bowl, add remaining ingredients and stir to combine and form a paste.
  • Add dried chickpeas to bowl and mix well to coat chickpeas with seasoning.
  • Pour chickpeas out onto a foil-lined baking sheet to form one layer.
  • Roast in oven for 15 minutes, then remove and stir chickpeas.
  • Return to oven to roast 15 minutes or until golden and crispy. Watch closely to prevent burning.
