Ingredients
  

  • 300 g Dried Chickpeas (or 2 tins of chickpeas drained)
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Instructions
 

  • Soak dried chickpeas overnight or drain the tins of chickpeas
  • In a medium bowl, toss the chickpeas with olive oil
  • Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with reusable parchment paper. Spread the chickpeas on the baking sheet and then bake them for 25 minutes.
  • Then take the chickpeas out of the oven and place them in the bowl you used before. Add the spices and toss well until the chickpeas are coated evenly
  • Return them to the baking sheet and bake for another 10 minutes until they’re browned and crunchy, but keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn at this stage.

Notes

TIPS AND TRICKS
It’s important to dry the chickpeas as well as possible because this way they will become much crunchier. Sometimes I pop them in the oven for the first ten minutes without any oil and as a result they are lovely and crispy.
Add any spices and seasonings towards the end of the baking time because they have the tendency to burn and make the baked chickpeas a bit bitter.
Don’t skimp on the olive oil. It will make the roasted spicy chickpeas super crispy.
If you don’t eat them straight away these should store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks at room temperature. They will even freeze well.
