Roasted Chickpeas Flavor Ideas

Try the following flavor combinations in place of garlic powder and paprika:

  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon with a dash of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of nutritional yeast
  • A sprinkle of lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric

Add salt, if desired. Mix and match flavors, based on your personal taste preference. Do not be shy - try other spice combinations as well! If you are not opposed to additional sugar and calories, add maple syrup or honey to create a sweeter version.


  • 1 - 16 oz can garbanzo beans
  • extra virgin olive oil spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon (or large pinch) paprika


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Spread beans onto a baking sheet. Lightly spray beans with olive oil. Sprinkle with spices and toss well to evenly coat, using a spatula. Spread into a single layer.
  4. Bake for 30-45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Chickpeas are done when they are crunchy. Be careful not to burn yourself when checking if they are done.
  5. Optional step: turn the oven off and leave chickpeas in the oven until it has cooled. This will create an even bigger crunch!
  6. Remove from oven. Allow to cool before eating or storing.
