Ingredients
  • 3 cups chickpeas (or 2, 12oz cans)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp roasted garlic powder (penzy's brand is amazing)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. 425 degrees if using a convection oven.
  2. Rinse and Drain chickpeas.
  3. Pour out onto a clean dishcloth or paper towels and dry thoroughly. We want the oil to coat the chickpeas so we need to remove all of the surface water.
  4. In a gallon sized Ziploc bag, combine the chickpeas and olive oil. Seal the bag and shake until all the chickpeas are coated with oil
  5. Dump the chickpeas onto a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  6. Chickpeas are done when they are browned and crunchy. Watch carefully as they can brown quickly and cooking time will vary by oven.
  7. Remove from oven and cool. Store at room temperature in a air-tight container for up to one week.
