  • Can of chickpeas garbanzo beans
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Seasonings of your choice


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Drain your can of beans and rinse in a strainer.
  3. Lay out a paper towel or a cookie sheet and dump the rinsed beans on top. Top with another paper towel.
  4. Roll the towel around on the beans until they are dry. Remove the paper towels.
  5. Transfer the beans to a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and any other seasonings you might like. Some good choices are cayenne pepper (1/4 tsp), cumin (1/2 tsp), and turmeric (1 tsp).
  6. Return to the sheet pan (without the towels) and place in your preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, until golden and crunchy.
  7. Remove from oven and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  8. Crunch away!
