Crunchy Chickpeas


I’m on a bit more of a health kick than usual eating consciously and trying to ensure that everything I put in my body has some decent nutritional value. I still enjoy the occasional snack though but obviously have been looking for healthier alternatives. These are perfect if you fancy the crunch and savoury flavour of crisps but without the guilt. They’re incredibly simple too.

You’ll need a can of chickpeas and flavourings of your choice. I used onion granules, garlic powder, salt, pepper, fresh rosemary and a teaspoon of olive oil.

Drain and rinse the peas before drying well on kitchen roll.


Remove the kitchen roll and add the flavouring of your choice plus a teaspoon of olive oil.


Spread out in a single layer on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray and bake at 180oC until crispy shaking the tray occasionally to move them around. It’ll probably take between 30-40 minutes.


After 30-40 mins they should look something like this:


Enjoy! Oh, and these are great for little ones too!
