Roasted chickpeas are a delicious and healthy snack that you can add to pastas, salads, roasted vegetables, or eat as is. They’re crunchy, satisfying, and FULL of flavor!



  • 1 (15 oz) cans garbanzo beans
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp za’atar
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp coriander


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Drain, rinse, and dry chickpeas. Place in a large mixing bowl with olive oil and spices, then toss to evenly coat. Pour onto prepared baking sheet, making sure chickpeas are in an even single layer. Bake for 25-30 minutes, rotating pan halfway through cooking time.
  3. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.


  • If you want them extra crunchy, don’t use parchment.
  • They will become chewy the longer they sit, so try to eat them day of!
  • You can totally switch up the spices!
  • Can be eaten as is, in place of croutons, accompanying a cheese board, on pastas, added to salads – endless possibilities!
