  • 15 oz garbanzo beans, drained (reserve the juice for baking) and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil optional
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper only if you like spicy food


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a small bowl, whisk the spices until combined
  • In a medium bowl, stir the spices and olive oil (this will make the beans crunchier, leave it out if you don’t eat oil) until the beans are completely covered in the spice blend. Spread the beans out on the baking sheet. They should be spread out, not piled up.
  • Bake for 20 minutes then shake the pan to turn the chickpeas. Bake another 10 to 20 minutes, or until they’re crunchy in the center.
  • Enjoy!
