Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked or canned chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Drain and dry chickpeas thoroughly in between a kitchen towel, picking out any loose skins
  • Add to a bowl with all remaining ingredients and using a spoon or your fingers, mix and coat all chickpeas

Air Fryer

  • Cook at 180°C/350°F for 11 minutes. Check the chickpeas, if they aren't crispy enough cook for an extra minute and check again. Be careful not to leave in too long without checking as they can burn very quickly.
  • Once ready, turn the heat off and let them rest in the Air Fryer for 5 minutes

Oven

  • Cook at 220°C/425°F for 18-20 minutes (depending on oven strength). Remove at 10 minutes and shake the tray so the chickpeas move around. Be careful not to leave in too long without checking as they can burn very quickly.
  • Once ready, turn the heat off and let them rest in the Oven for 5 minutes
  • Allow chickpeas to cool on the tray once removed from the oven for 5-10 mins to help them crisp up even more and enjoy your crunchy snack!
