Toasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas make for a great, healthy snack without giving up on taste.



  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat.
  2. Add a small amount of olive oil (optional) to the skillet to help the toasting process.
  3. Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  4. Add the chickpeas to the skillet.
  5. Heat on medium until dried/toasted. About 15 minutes.
  6. Season with salt or any other seasonings you may desire.
  7. Note: great snack for Fat Smash.

Better without the oil.
This is a fantastic snack - and remember the oil is optional. I personally prefer it without the oil.
I love chickpeas. This sounds amazing. I think I'll try this tonight!
I couldn't stop picking them out of the pan while they were cooking! YUMMY!!!
What are the points per serving? Am I missing the points listing somewhere?

Did the same thing in the microwave. Sprayed the chickpeas with oil (a little) and baked them for 15-30 mins.

These are GREAT. I used the 1/2 tsp. of olive oil and sprinkled jalapeno salt on them. YUMO!!!!!!! I think it comes out to 2 pts. per 1/2 cup serv. I tried to figure the ingredients on the Pointsfinder. Right or wrong???

This sounds like such a great snack! Thanks so much for the idea, I can't wait to try it.
This looks great - I LOVE humus so perhaps I can fake out my body with this! Thank you!
