Here’s a healthy, vegan-free chickpea crunch snack that I absolutely love! I always get so excited whenever I find a healthy alternative to chips that is easy to make and taste just as delicious. Not only is it a low-cal option, it’s also filled with protein and fiber, which will give you that added boost of energy.
By baking these chickpeas in the oven, you’ll get a nice crunchy, savory, and satisfying snack that’s great for you to also bring on-the-go or at home. If you have your own seasoning for this snack then I would love for you to share it with me Just comment below and I’ll definitely try it next time!
2 Package of chickpeas/garbanzo
Seasoning (garlic salt, rosemary, pepper)
Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 Celsius.
Rinse the chickpeas in the colander very well.
Dry the chickpeas on top of a paper towel. This will help give it a nice crunch as well as rid of any unwanted shells.
Next, add in your own seasoning. This is where you can get creative. For my snack, I used a tablespoon of garlic salt and a pinch of pepper. Some other options include: cumin, paprika, or garlic, thyme or rosemary.
Top it off with a tablespoon of olive oil and mix everything together.
Lay off a parchment paper onto your pan and place the chickpeas onto the surface of your pan. Use a spoon to space out the chickpeas.
Bake the chickpea for 30 minutes, but if you want an extra added crunch, you can leave it in the oven for a total of 40 minutes!
Once it’s done baking, take the chickpeas out and let it cool down at room temperature for 10-20 minutes.
Now you have a great delicious snack to munch on!
