Aviator Eats: Crispy Chickpeas

Aviator Eats: Crispy Chickpeas

After making some sweet and salty treats last week we’re back on our health kick. This is a pantry raid recipe for when you’re craving a crunchy snack. All you need are three ingredients, two of which are definitely already in your house.


  • 1 can of chickpeas (15.5 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Seasonings and/or herbs of your choice.


  • Drain the can of chickpeas and place on a sheet pan and dry with a paper towel. It is important to get the chickpeas as dry as possible so they get crispy.
  • Transfer chickpeas to a small bowl and add the olive oil and seasonings, herbs
  • Place the chickpeas back on a sheet pan in a single layer with parchment paper
  • Place the chickpeas in an oven preheated to 400 degrees
  • Roast for 20 minutes, then mix around and roast for an additional 20 minutes

If the chickpeas are not dry they’ll end up with a chewier texture. They can be used in salads, pastas, and sandwiches if this happens.

Flavor Combo Recommendations

  • Garlic + Parmesean + Italian Herbs
  • Chili Powder + Salt
  • Salt + Pepper + Garlic
  • Paprika + Turmeric + Salt
  • Onion Powder + Garlic Powder + Salt
  • Trader Joe’s Seasonings – These are our favorite.
