Looking for an easy, healthy, crunchy snack? You’ve got to try these spicy roasted garbanzos (chickpeas)! They’re a little bit sweet, and a little bit spicy!
I found the recipe for these spicy roasted garbanzos online, and thought it sounded quite interesting! Garbanzo beans are also highly nutritious and filling. I had all the ingredients, so quickly whipped up a batch (easy peasy)!
Garbanzo beans are lightly tossed with olive oil, then roasted. Once they are crunchy, and hot straight from the oven, they are tossed in a dry spice mix that is only a bit spicy and a bit sweet, to cover. The best part? The taste and the fact it is a fairly low calorie, nutritious snack!
Spicy roasted garbanzos (chickpeas) are BEST when eaten right after roasting… they tend to lose a bit of the crunch factor after sitting for awhile. I like to think of them as an alternative to hot popcorn, except without all the carbs and butter! Popcorn is always best right after popping, too!

How Do I Make Spicy Roasted Garbanzos?
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. While your oven is preheating, open, drain and rinse a can of garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas). Pat the garbanzos dry. I used a dish towel to remove most of the moisture.
Once garbanzos are dry, place them on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with a Tablespoon of olive oil, then gently toss, to coat. Spread the garbanzos out on the baking sheet, then bake in preheated 450 degree oven for approximately 15-20 minutes. When done, they should be crunchy on the outside and golden brown in color.
While the garbanzos are roasting, mix together the spices in a small bowl or cup.
When the garbanzos were done roasting, I placed them in a small bowl while they were still hot. The spice mix was then sprinkled over the hot garbanzos, and they were tossed together until the roasted garbanzos were covered with spice mix.
Time To Enjoy Some Spicy Roasted Garbanzos!
Serve the spicy roasted garbanzos hot and fresh! You can snack on them just like popcorn! A single serving (approximately 1/2 cup) has under 150 calories! Remember- this healthy snack is at it’s very crunchy BEST when served hot and fresh!
The spicy roasted garbanzos are a wonderful snack! They are only a little bit spicy, and you do taste a little bit of the sweetness from the small amount of brown sugar! They taste so good, it’s a safe bet to say that it will be hard for you to stay out of them!
