This savory snack is packed with fiber and protein. They are fun to munch on, but also make a fantastic topping for salads!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 4


  • 15 oz. canned chickpeas drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala
  • 1/8 tsp. salt


  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir well so that the chickpeas are coated in the oil and spices.
  • Place the chickpea mixture into the air fryer basket and spread out in a single layer (if using a Mealthy CrispLid, place the basket on the trivet to raise it up). (If you don't have an air fryer, preheat your oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and place the chickpeas on the baking sheet in a single layer.)
  • Cook in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until they are browning and crispy, tossing once or twice to get even cooking, if necessary. (If using the oven, bake for 20 - 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.)
  • Store in an open container.
