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.

I didn't use the oil and it was great!

Delicious & addicting snack. Personally, I don't use oil. Season with any of your favorite types of flavors. I love an Indian inspired masala mix. Great with garlic, onion, or any of your favorite spices! YUM!
Wow, what a great idea!! I've got a tin lurking about I think I'll give it a go :) Thanks.

My friends thought they were corn nuts then spit them out and said they tasted like dog food! It became entertaining after a while :)

I am excited about this recipe. I've made 2 batches. I did not use oil and I added the seasoning to the chick peas while they were toasting. One batch had 2 tsp of Cajun seasoning while the other had 2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.
