Air Fryer Extra Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas

This recipe makes about 1.5 cups (340 g) of roasted chickpeas.


1 15.5 oz (455 g) can chickpeas

1 tablespoons (15 mL) olive oil

1 teaspoon (5 g) seasoning (I used Target’s Chili-Lime blend)

Nonstick cooking spray


  1. Thoroughly rinse the chickpeas with with cold water in a strainer.
  2. Pat the chickpeas dry with paper towel as much as possible.
  3. Spray the plate in your air fryer with nonstick spray.
  4. Add the chickpeas to the air fryer, and drizzle the olive oil over the chickpeas.
  5. Shake the basket, so the oil is coating the chickpeas, and make sure the chickpeas are in a flat layer in the air fryer.
  6. Air fry the chickpeas for 20 minutes at 400*F (200*C).
  7. Every five minutes, pause the air fryer and shake the basket.
  8. Five minutes before the time is up, pause the air fryer and sprinkle your seasoning over the chickpeas, then shake the basket to evenly distribute the seasoning on the chickpeas.
  9. When the 20 minutes are up, let the chickpeas cool down in the air fryer completely.
  10. When the chickpeas are cool, store them in a ziplock bag or airtight container, and enjoy right away, or store for up to one week.

Tip: Target and Trader Joe’s have excellent pre-made seasoning blends.
