Ingredients
  • 1 15oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ¾ tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • ½ heaping tsp ground smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground garlic
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp coarse sea salt
  • ⅛-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Rinse and drain chickpeas, then dry well with paper towel or clean dish towel. Remove skins if desired.
  3. Combine smoked paprika, garlic, turmeric, cinnamon, sea salt and cayenne in small bowl.
  4. Add rinsed and dried chickpeas to baking sheet. Drizzle with melted coconut oil and toss to coat.
  5. Sprinkle seasoning mixture over oil covered chickpeas, toss to fully cover, then spread seasoned chickpeas onto baking sheet in single layer.
  6. Roast 30 minutes or until golden and crispy, it may take up to 35-40 minutes. Remove and shake the pan halfway through.
  7. Once golden and crispy, remove from oven, allow to cool then eat by themselves or add to your favorite salad!
  8. Do not put them in airtight container for storing until they are fully cooled. If they are still warm, this will trap moisture and cause them to soften back up.
