  • Air Fryer



  • Lay your chickpeas out on paper towels to dry out after rinsing and draining. I like to roll them around on a few sheets of paper towels until completely dry.
  • Add chickpeas to a bowl with a lid. Drizzle with 1 ½ teaspoons of olive oil. Add spices. Put the lid on the container and toss to coat. This method gets the chickpeas pretty evenly coated. 
  • Add the spiced chickpeas to the air fryer, arranging in a single layer in the basket. Cook at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes, shaking halfway through.
  • When cooked to your desired level of crispness (which is around 20-22 minutes for me), remove from the air fryer. Taste and add more salt, if desired.
  • Snack away!


I think they are best enjoyed right from the air fryer when they are still warm.
