So these Crispy Roasted Chickpeas are one of my weird late night cravings. Seriously, these are one of my favorite snack foods. I began making toasted chickpeas a couple years ago. I’m sure I first saw them on Pinterest or in a food magazine. Why I decided to give this a try I will never know because I am not really a chickpea fan. Just plain chickpeas like at a salad bar gross me out! But, put them in hummus or make Roasted Chickpeas and I am all about it. It must be a consistency issue. That’s why these Crispy Roasted Chickpeas are great. They have a crisp outer layer and a steamy soft inside.

Toasted chickpeas are definitely a great healthy snack alternative to chips. I use Thrive® Algae Oil to get perfectly crisp chickpeas. The health benefits of Thrive™ Algae Oil are perfect for this nutritious snack recipe. It has the highest level of monounsaturated fat {the good fat} and the lowest level of saturated fat {the bad fat} with 75% less saturated fat than olive oil.

This is one of those crazy simple recipes that takes barely any effort. Just drain, rinse and dry the chickpeas then toss with oil and bake. Stir every 5 minutes or so to ensure that the chickpeas are evenly toasted.

As far as the seasoning . . . use your favorite! For these chickpeas I used a Southwest season blend. I have also used Cajun spice, Italian seasoning, plain salt and pepper or dry ranch mix. If your seasoning blend includes salt you may not need to add additional sea salt.

    Can regular olive oil be used? I don’t have the algae oil and don’t want to get it just to try this recipe. I tried a chickpea recipe a few years ago and they were only crispy after I took them out of the oven, then got soggy after they say a day. Since I didn’t see a way to store these, I’m guessing they aren’t meant to be kept? Thanks

      Yes, you can use regular olive oil. If you are wanting extra crispy chickpeas you can also roast for a bit longer, just watch very carefully during that extra time to prevent burning. And yes, you are correct. I make these to eat immediately. I find they get soggy if stored for later. I have had a little success reheating in a saute pan over medium/high heat. That brings a bit of crispness back to the chickpeas.

  2. I love roasted chickpeas, they are one of my favorite snacks EVER! So yummy!

  3. The perfect healthy snack! So portable too!
