Savory Chili Seasoned Baked Chickpeas

It's time for some kitchen experimentation, also known as, Pinterest inspired recipes!
Today, I am finally making Seasoned Baked Chickpeas.
The seasoning palate varies from the sweet cinnamon sugar to the garlic seasoned chickpeas.  I am trying my take with savory chili seasoned baked chickpeas today!
Start with a couple of cans of chickpeas.  Rinse and pat dry with paper towels.

Put in mixing bowl with 2 Tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon paprika, and optional 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper for the heat.

Place on ungreased baking sheet, make sure one layer of chickpeas only.  Bake on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes.  Take out and cool chickpeas.  Place bake into oven for 15 to minutes additional baking time.  The chickpeas should not be moist when done baking, the are a crunchy treat. Allow to cool. before serving.

 The Verdict is in...
make another batch!
Maybe a batch with honey and mustard?



  1. Hi Nancy! Hi have to admit I've never had chick peas, perhaps because I thought the flavor was kind of bland...BuT they sure are not bland after going through your kitchen! wow...I bet they are delicious. They are high in fiber and low in calories making them the perfect tool if you want to loose weight the healthy and tasty way! Thank You so much for linking up to the Fluster Buster Party, can't wait to see what you bring next week, Lizy, your party co-host!
