Sweet & Spiced Roasted Chickpeas

This is a super simple recipe that I have been loving lately.  It is the perfect way to cook up my go-to pantry staple: garbanzo beans!  These sweet and spiced roasted chickpeas are full of so much amazing flavor.  They are slightly sweet from the smoked paprika and maple syrup.  This is balanced out by savory cumin and turmeric which provides earthiness.  The salt makes everything pop.  Altogether it is beyond addictive.  It is the perfect healthy sweet, salty, savory snack.

I like to use neutral avocado oil but you can also use extra virgin olive oil.  Either works, I just prefer the flavor of avocado oil.

To make them, simply toss all the ingredients together in a cast iron skillet or bare baking pan.  Then, roast them for a little less than 30 minutes in your oven.  That’s it!  They are ready to enjoy immediately.

Health Benefits of Chickpeas

Chickpeas are one of my favorite pantry staples I use to whip up last minute recipes.  They are easy to work with, versatile, inexpensive and nutritious.  Chickpeas are considered a legume, which means it contains plant-based protein, fiber and complex carbs.  They are also an excellent source of folic acid.  Plus, they are low in fat and contain no cholesterol.  This snack will digest slowly (keeping you fuller longer) and is satisfying without making you feel stuffed.

Description

Liven up your can of garbanzo beans with this Sweet and Spiced Roasted Chickpeas recipe.  It is super simple to make and full of so much crispy delicious flavor.  Grab a handful for a nutrient-rich snack or use them on top of your salads, grain bowls or soups for added texture.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 ounce) can of garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (not regular paprika)
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and flaky sea salt if desired

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a cast iron skillet or bare baking sheet greased with oil.  Toss well to combine.  Bake at 400 degrees for 25-27 minutes.
  2. Remove from oven and enjoy!  Best when fresh.  You can store and enjoy later but they will start to lose their crispiness after a couple of hours.  Best served warm.

Notes

  • This recipe also works with just garbanzo beans, oil and salt if you want to make a kid-friendly version or don’t like spices.  You can also switch up the spices and find your own favorite combination.  This spice combination is my current obsession though and I highly recommend it.
  • I like the flavor best on a cast iron skillet for that perfect golden brown sear and tons of flavor, but a bare rimmed baking sheet brushed with oil will work in a pinch!
