Air Fryer Crispy Seasoned Chickpeas

Though I’m trying to watch what I eat, one habit I can’t seem to stop is snacking after work. Savory, salty treats are difficult to deny for me, and fruits and veggies just never seem to do the trick. Enter chickpeas and the air fryer. This simple treat crisps up on its own using minimal oil in the air fryer. You can also modify the spices to your taste!

Ingredients

1 19 oz. can chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and dried with a paper towel

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste (to add after cooking)

Directions

  1. Heat air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Drain and rise the chickpeas. Dry off with a paper towel to get as much water off as possible. Toss in a small bowl with olive oil and spices (not including regular salt/pepper).
  3. Pour the chickpeas into the air fryer basket. Try to shake the basket so the chickpeas create a single layer.
  4. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked to your desired level of crispiness. Shake the basket of the air fryer 1-2 times during cooking to shake up the chickpeas.
  5. Remove chickpeas from basket and sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Store in an open container.
