Oven Roasted Chili Chickpeas


Since starting the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, my eating habits have really changed. Combining intermittent fasting with carb cycling has made me even more aware of what I’m eating. And it’s also made me realize that I really need to balance my macros (proteins, fats and carbs) on my full macro days. Thus, I’ve been on the lookout for some yummy snacks that are tasty, salty, crunchy and savory and also help me get to my macro goals. These oven roasted chili chickpeas are right up that alley. Oh, and they are gluten-free and dairy-free!

What are the macros?

For this recipe, the entire panful and divide it in to 4 equal servings (I usually use a scale). Then each of those 4 servings has 12 grams of F, 7 grams of protein and 15 net carbs making it fit nicely into most ways of eating. 

What do you need?

You’ll start with one can of chickpeas (or garbanzo beans), some olive oil (or your favorite fat), and some seasoning. The beauty of the seasoning is that you can really adapt this to any seasonings you’d like. You could even make it sweet or chocolatey. 

Also, grab a cookie sheet and some parchment paper. 

Getting started

Preheat your oven to 300F. Place your chickpeas on a parchment lined baking sheet. Make sure to give the sheet a little shake some the beans are all on one layer.

Cooking your chickpeas

Before adding anything to the chickpeas, you’ll roast them for 90 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes or so. 

At the 90 minute mark, remove the chickpeas from the oven, sprinkle the oil over the top of them and then sprinkle all of the seasonings. Mix them all well and spread them back out to one layer. 

Roast the chickpeas for a final 30 minutes. Then remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. I like to eat them right away, but if you have some left (if you didn’t share), store them in an air tight container. 

Flavor options

You could use part of a packet of taco seasoning, use cinnamon and sugar, just olive oil and salt (maybe with pepper) and more. I think even adding some cocoa powder and powdered sugar would be amazing.

  1. I have been wanting to try roasted chikpeas. I really like the spices that you used. I already have all of these ingredients, so perhaps I will make these today while my daughters are napping.

  2. This is something I can hardly wait to try when my new range comes in. It has been on order for a while, the appliance store warned me, so I’ve been getting by with stove top and my slow cooker. But when I can use the oven, I love chick peas and this looks dee-lish! A good snack for company, also.
