How to Make Spicy Roasted Chickpeas

by Karen Larard

We love to snack in the evening, but we also need to keep an eye on our fat intake, so this is a less fat alternative to roasted peanuts.


  • 1 Can of chickpeas
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Chilli powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ¼ Teaspoons Salt
  • ⅛ Teaspoons Cayenne pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Honey flavoured BBQ powder
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    This is my spice drawer, yes it is a mess, but it is my lovely mess of flavours. I have labeled everything on the lid so I don't have to roam too much to find what I'm looking for. 😝

    Step 2

    See the supply tab for which spices I used. Use what ever spices that takes your fancy. Preheat your oven to 400°F/200°C

    Step 3

    Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pat them dry. Remove the skin or not, it is up to you.

    Step 4

    Mix your spices with the oil and add chickpeas, toss to coat.

    Step 5

    Place chickpeas on a baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes, stir occasionally until chickpeas are brown and crisp. Serve warm or at room temperature.
