Chickpeas are lightly tossed with truffle salt and roasted to create a crispy, addictive and guilt-free salty snack.

Crispy Baked Chickpeas with Truffle Salt

As you’ve probably gathered by now, I have a major salty tooth. I will take a cheese platter over a tray of cupcakes any day of the week! When it comes to healthy snacking, these Crispy Baked Chickpeas with Truffle Salt are the ideal balance of satisfying crunch and protein-packed nutrition.

Truffle salt can be found at most specialty food stores, spice shops or online. While it is a bit pricey, a little goes a long way thanks to the deep, nutty flavor of the truffle mushrooms. These are great for stashing in the car, bringing to work for a mid-day snack, or keeping in your gym bag for post-workout fuel. They will stay fresh in an airtight container for several days but they are most crunchy right out of the oven. If you cannot locate truffle salt pink Himalayan salt would be a good substitute.

Frequently asked questions:

How do you make chickpeas crispy?

The key to making these baked chickpeas as crispy as possible is to pat them dry with a paper towel once you’ve rinsed off the canning liquid. Not only does this process remove unnecessary sodium but it ensures optimal crunch faction at the end. If you’re feeling ambitious, you are welcome to pop the skin off the chickpeas but I am a huge fan of leaving it on for added fiber.

Where are chickpeas in a supermarket?

They are normally located with all of the other canned beans.

What are chickpeas labeled as in a supermarket?

If you don’t find chickpeas look for garbanzo beans. They are the same bean.

Are chickpeas good for you?

Yes. Between the fiber, b vitamins, iron and magnesium they are good for you. Also, chickpeas contain no cholesterol.

        These are delicious!!! You can even do a cinnamon sugar or spicy variation, depending on what you like! Just add some cinnamon and sugar, or sesame oil and chili powder to give it a kick.

    The first time I roasted chickpeas, I totally burned them and haven’t tried them again since! I need to try it again because I am crazy about chickpeas!
