Notes

  • Tips for the best roasted chickpeas:
  • Dry off the chickpeas – Make sure you dry your chickpeas off thoroughly! If you’re using canned chickpeas, I like to run them through a strainer, drain them completely, rinse off any of the liquid from the can, and drain again. Then, I lie the chickpeas on a clean dish towel and pat completely dry.
  • Don’t skimp on the oil – Using oil helps get the chickpeas super crispy. You can use olive oil or avocado oil, but make sure you don’t skimp on it!
  • Substitutions for this recipe:
  • Oils- You can use olive oil or avocado oil.

Get creative with your favorite spices and make your own blend! You will need a total of 1 1/2 teaspoons of spice/seasonings in total – so have fun with it!
  • WW Freestyle: The only points in this recipe come from the olive oil. Feel free to substitute or use a spray to make this 0SP
