Roasted Garlic Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

Hello world! Roasted chickpeas come out like tiny potatoes! It's magic, not like magic. It is magic. Okay, I'm exaggerating. These garlic-y little guys surpassed expectation by a long shot! So simple, too. Especially simple if you use a can of chickpeas that are already cooked.

Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 can of chickpeas - strained
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup of oil - I've been using grape seed oil but you can use olive oil 
  • a few cracks from the pepper grinder or a pinch of pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Strain your can of chickpeas and place the chickpeas on a paper towel to strain out any extra fluid.
  • Mix up your salt, garlic powder, oil, and pepper.
  • Toss your chickpeas into the mix.
  • Then place them on a baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes for softer chickpeas and 30 for crispier ones. I did mine for 15 minutes and they were perfect.
