  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Rinse and drain the can of chickpeas.
  • Pat the chickpeas dry with a paper towel.
  • In a bowl, mix olive oil, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper to create a seasoning.
  • Add the chickpeas to the bowl and toss until the chickpeas are fully coated with the seasoning.
  • Pour the coated chickpeas onto a baking sheet.
  • Roast the chickpeas for 20-30 minutes or until they are crispy and golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.


1. Always make sure to properly drain and dry your chickpeas before roasting them to ensure maximum crispiness.
2. Use a seasoning mixture that complements the flavor of the chickpeas, but also adds a bit of extra taste. In this case, the combination of garlic powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper add depth of flavor to the roasted chickpeas.
3. Toss the chickpeas in the seasoning mixture until they are fully coated to ensure that every bite of the roasted chickpeas is delicious.
4. Use a baking sheet with a non-stick surface or line your baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent the chickpeas from sticking, which can cause them to lose their crispiness.
5. Keep a close eye on the chickpeas while they are roasting. Every oven is different, so it's important to check on them every few minutes to make sure they don't burn.
6. Let the roasted chickpeas cool completely before serving. This allows them to reach their maximum crispiness and will make your snack or meal more enjoyable.
