Spicy Chickpea Snack

By Savvybrown @savvybrownblog

Chickpeas as a snack? Yes! Absolutely. This Spicy Chickpea Snack is crazy simple and I will fully admit to having skipped dinner and eaten half a bowl of this stuff while watching movie after a hard work day instead of popcorn.

Spicy Chickpea Snack Recipe - Savvy Brown

Spicy Chickpea Snack


  • 2 cups of soaked, boiled and drained chickpeas OR 1-15oz. can* drained
  • 2 tbsps EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp onion pepper
  • 1/8 tsp curry powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Lay chickpeas out to dry on a plate or cotton towel (Make sure they’re REALLY dry)
  • In a bowl, toss the chickpeas in oil, then add spices and toss again
  • Lay chickpeas in one layer on an un-greased cookie sheet or pan lined with parchment paper
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes then toss and bake another 12 minutes
  • Remove from oven and let cool fully before serving

*loose beans are healthier than canned ones because canned can have BPAs in the lining of the cans.
