Crunchy, taco seasoned Spicy Roasted Chickpeas make a great snack idea! Full of fiber which keeps you satisfied longer!

I love it when a healthy snack fills me up. I mean, I love carrots and grapes, but they just don’t make me full! And nuts? Love them too but I can’t seem to eat just one servings’ worth (which is what, 6 nuts?).

But chickpeas? They are so good. Not only in hummus, but as a crunchy roasted snack. Have you ever roasted your veggies for dinner? It makes them sweeter and delicious. I love to roast my chickpeas to the ultimate crunch, almost till they are burnt! I don’t like any “chew” to be left in them. Sprinkling them with taco seasoning makes them all the more addictive. And, like I said, they are filling too. Thanks to all the fiber I can eat a serving of these and feel satisfied.

Just like with hummus, I prefer to peel my chickpeas. If you don’t, you’ll find the skins come off in the oven, and they take all the good seasoning with them! This is a great job for little hands to help!

  1. Thanks for this easy recipe. I’ve been meaning to find a seasoned chick pea recipe rather than buying the pre-made store snacks (which are a bit expensive). This recipe makes a ton of baked chick peas for about $5, I’m guessing.

  2. One tip for getting these crunchy is once you remove the skins – DRY DRY DRY!!! Seriously – use papertowels and get ALL the moisture off of them and they should then turn out nice and crunchy. Don’t worry – the spice will still adhere to them – the more wet they are going in the oven the mushier they turn out

    1. great tip! I also roast the heck out of them until they start to blacken. But that’s cause I like them almost burnt 🙂
