Crispy Chickpeas

These crispy chickpeas are one of my favourite savoury study snacks. They’re crispy and salty and couldn’t be easier to make as you only need 6 ingredients.

I’m not a fan of long stories before recipes so I promise I’ll keep this one to a few sentences. However, I do have a fond memory of when I had crispy chickpeas for the first time. It was at my husbands’ parents place. His mum makes these delicious crispy chickpeas with garlic and herb salt which she serves alongside roasted vegetables and greens for dinner. I absolutely loved them (still do!).

While I love them as a snack, these crispy chickpeas are also great in nourish bowls as well as wraps. They’re super easy to make and while they do take 25-30 minutes in the oven to roast, they require all of 2 minutes to prepare beforehand. I like adding oregano, paprika and cumin to my chickpeas, however, you can also add other spices or herbs if you have any personal favourites.
