Chickpeas in a bowl

Crispy Air Fryer Chickpeas


Crunchy, toasted, seasoned chickpeas perfect for putting on salads, in wraps, or just for for a snack!


1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon olive oil (or oil of choice)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika


  1. Drain canned chickpeas and rinse with cool water.
  2. Lay out on a few paper towels and pat dry.
  3. Place chickpeas in small bowl and drizzle with olive oil and spices and toss to combine.
  4. Place in air fryer in a single layer and cook for 12-15 minutes, shaking once in the middle (if you remember- no biggie if you don’t!) Pull a large one out and test it.  If it still has a soft bite to it, cook an additional few minutes until crunchy.  I personally cook mine for more like 15-18 minutes, sometimes up to 20 to get them completely crisp!
  5. Let cool before putting into a bowl.  Store open at room temp (if you live in a dry environment) or in an airtight container.
