So how do you make the crispiest chickpeas?
These specific steps will show you how easy it is to prepare a healthy chickpea snack!
For maximum crispiness!
- First bake the chickpeas pure! I bake the chickpeas for 15 minutes without oil and without spices. This way they start to get crunchy before they later absorb the olive oil.
- Don’t use too much oil. You want to avoid using too much oil to coat the chickpeas after their first time in the oven. Start with half a tablespoon, then add more drop by drop as needed. You only need enough oil for the spices to stick to the chickpeas!
- Leave the chickpeas to cool with the oven door slightly ajar . At the end of baking, I turn off the oven, open the door slightly and let the chickpeas cool inside. This will ensure they retain their crispy crunch for days.
- Storage: Store these roasted chickpeas in an airtight container at room temperature.
- If you don’t bake the chickpeas long enough, the chickpeas may soften a bit and lose their crispiness. Then simply bake in the oven for another 2-5 minutes until crispy.
Crispy chickpeas from the oven
- Lightly line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 200°C.
- Drain the chickpeas in a colander, rinse and dry thoroughly.
- Place dried chickpeas on the baking tray, spread evenly and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes . WITHOUT spices and oil.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, sea salt, onion powder, and pepper.
- Remove the chickpeas from the oven and toss in a bowl with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil until evenly coated. Add a little more olive oil if needed.
- Now pour the spices over the chickpeas and mix until the chickpeas are evenly coated with spices.
- Place back onto the baking sheet and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Stir once in between.
- If the chickpeas aren't crispy enough, let them cook for another 5 minutes or until you're satisfied.
- Now switch off the oven and open the door a little. Allow the chickpeas to cool in the oven for maximum crispiness.
