The Best Roasted Chickpeas – Spicy

Highly addictive and healthy snack that our whole family enjoys. These roasted chickpeas are a great high protein snack to take anywhere!

Preheat over to 400 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Rinse and then dry the chickpeas with a paper towel.

Add the chickpeas to the baking sheet, and then roast for 30 minutes.

Prepare your dry spice mix: In a small bowl stir together the cumin, coriander, cinnamon, garam masala, black pepper, chili pepper, and salt. Then set aside.

After the chickpeas have roasted for 30 minutes, remove them from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees.

Place the chickpeas in a large bowl and add the olive oil, lemon juice, and maple syrup.

Gently mix everything together, being careful not to break up the chickpeas.

Add in the dry spice blend to the bowl, then gently mix again making sure all the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Place the chickpeas back on to the baking sheet (making sure the chickpeas are in a single layer) and roast for 30 minutes at the pre-heated 350 degrees.

Once they have roasted, check for crunchiness. If the chickpeas are still slightly mealy in the middle, turn off the oven and let chickpeas sit in the oven for 10-20 mins (don’t forget to turn off the oven).
