Sweet and Salty Roasted Chickpeas – Cheap, Easy, and Addictive

Prior to making sweet and salty roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans), chickpeas did not entice me at snack time.  I didn’t search the pantry saying, “Chocolate, nah!  Graham cracker, no thanks.  Oooh, I know what I should have: chickpeas!”  Silly me!   I now realize that with minimal effort, some sugar, a small amount of oil, spices, and salt, a can of chickpeas can turn into a grazing food akin in addictiveness and crunching pleasure to popcorn.

Hop on board the chickpea choo choo (I’m picturing a train with chickpeas flying out of the engine instead of smoke) and give these a go!  If you’re already along for the ride, I’d love to hear what spices you use.

Sweet and Salty Roasted Chickpea Recipe

Sweet and Salty Roasted Chickpeas – Cheap, Easy, and Addictive

Sweet and Salty Roasted Chickpeas – Cheap, Easy, and Addictive


  • 1 can (14 oz) chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon or your spice(s) of choice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Place chickpeas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. Bake at 450 F for 30 minutes. (You didn't miss anything here. You don't oil or season them until after they are done. In fact, for an extra healthy treat, try them when they get out of the oven before even adding the oil. They are enjoyable all on their own.)
  3. Transfer chickpeas to a bowl and mix thoroughly with the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Enjoy hot, or bring to room temperature and store in an air-tight container. Like popped corn, the chickpeas are never as good the next day. However, they are still quite enjoyable 3-4 days after making them.

I encourage you to eat the chickpeas hot by the handful, but save a few as cupcake toppers for gluten-free chocolate cupcakes made with garbanzo bean flour (coming soon).

    oh these sweet and salty chickpeas sound delicious! thanks

    I’ve made a few different variations of roasted chickpeas, but never with cinnamon and sugar. It sounds wonderful!!

  3. Kittish July 5, 2011 at 6:55 am #

    That sounds like a terrific idea! I can already see making honey roasted, spicy, maybe even a sweet and spicy one! I hate popcorn, this might become my go to alternative! My picky eater boyfriend might even like them, at least as long as I don’t tell him what he’s eating.

  14. Mary July 9, 2011 at 6:51 am #

    i’m confused…..you say they’re not as good the next day but enjoyable 3-4 days later? so don’t eat them the next day but wait 3 days and then they’re good?

  15. Bonnie July 9, 2011 at 6:20 pm #

    @ Mary – She was being sarcastic…as in while they are the best on the first day, they continue to be irresistible as the days go on.

  16. Stef July 9, 2011 at 8:40 pm #

    Bonnie – Thanks for clarifying. That’s exactly what I meant.

  17. Rebecca July 20, 2011 at 1:58 pm #

    I double the recipe but only used 1/4 tsp. salt and added roughly 1/4 tsp. cayenne. I had to bake mine for 40 mins, but even then many weren’t very crunchy. I really think it depends on the brand of the canned chickpeas- The ones I bought for this were made by ‘Clic’ and seemed softer than the ones I usually buy (not sure of the brand). Instead of solely using cinnamon I used a homemade spice blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice, cardamom & star anise. Tasty! I’d love to see a version of these using pb or a savoury recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  18. Deidre July 20, 2011 at 2:13 pm #

    WOW! I haven’t tried sweet chick peas but it’s HIGH on my to-do list now.

    I generally make a savoury version where you roast them with a little bit of garlic and while their still warm add some cumin and paprika.

    I can’t wait to try this recipe.

  19. Peggy Lee August 19, 2011 at 2:10 pm #

    I found this on Pinterest. I absolutely LOVE chick peas. I like to eat them right out of the can though. They are like natures candy. I think I will try these sprinkled with one of my favorite spices: curry. YUM!!

  23. Liz November 8, 2011 at 7:49 pm #

    What about making them with dried chickpeas? I have a whole bag that I could use…

  24. Christie November 15, 2011 at 3:52 pm #

    Made these today- I didn’t get them crispy enough and they are soggy. I cooked the beans at home and then froze them so I used them thawed. Maybe that’s why hey were soggy?

  25. Tammy or Jodie Schuyler December 1, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    Are the chickpeas supposed to be hard like a peanut? That’s what I was kinda expecting and they’re a bit mealy… Did I not bake them long enough or is that the way they’re supposed to be? =)

  26. Connie Stewart December 3, 2011 at 2:09 pm #

    Sitting at my computer enjoying these right now. So crunchy and so Yummy! I immediately started another batch for the football game tonight only this batch, I am sprinkling with garam masala (curry powder). 30 minutes is a long time to wait because I want them NOW! Great protein snack!

    Tip: after they come out of the oven, toss with the olive oil first… THEN sprinkle on the seasoning. I mixed the oil and seasoning together and it didn’t work all that well.

  27. Unknown December 3, 2011 at 6:28 pm #

    I wasn’t so eager for the sugar/cinnamon idea…so I made used butter/garlic/salt – WOW!!! My husband (who calls garbanzo beans garBAGO beans) loves them! I roasted the drained chickpeas by themselves for the 30 min. While they were roasting, I put fresh, minced garlic and butter into the micro (to “saute” the garlic). Then I poured the butter/garlic over the hot chickpeas, stirred it all, and returned it to the oven for another 5 min. Sprinkled salt over all when I pulled them out – and we gobbled them like chickens eatin bugs! YUM! Thanks!

    • Libby May 6, 2013 at 10:39 am #

      OMG add some minced rosemary to your garlic butter mixture

    • Honey February 17, 2015 at 7:38 pm #

      Yum…butter, garlic, salt…I can’t get to the kitchen fast enough. I’m not crazy about sweet snacks, but I love chick peas so I kept scrolling the comments and Voila, there you were. Your variation sounds DELISH. I might even sprinkle a little Parmesan.

  28. Anonymous December 19, 2011 at 12:28 pm #

    I love chickpeas, but had never tried roasting them before – this is a great idea! I was in more of a savory than a sweet mood, so I seasoned mine with lemon pepper seasoning, dill, garlic powder and kosher salt. Delicious!

    Please clarify the final chickpea consistency. After 25 minutes, the chickpeas had a shell texture, crunchy almost hallow. Maybe I cooked them too long? Thanks

  31. Danielle January 26, 2012 at 10:21 am #

    @Liz – home-cooked chickpeas should be equivalent to canned chickpeas. Just follow the cooking instructions on the bag. You’ll probably be able to get the same amount of chickpeas for half the cost this way, too!

  32. Lola Bellybutton January 30, 2012 at 7:23 am #

    of course. classic me. The first thing I decide to make from your AMAZING blog is not a cupcake, but these chickpeas. It was a good choice. These were delicious. I also flavored a bath with chipotle lime, and they were super as well. I just read about a version of these where you mix the sugar in before baking, and you get these lacy caramel sticky bits afterward? Sounds very good. Something I may just have to try.
    Here’s my version: http://cenabimus.blogspot.com/2011/11/sweet-and-salty-roasted-chickpeas.html

  33. Eileen Ward January 31, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

    I made them but I wondered if they should be crunchy throughout? Mine still have a little moosh to them. Also, when I mixed the sugar, and spices, they soaked up all of the oil and I ended up having to moosh the mixture with my hands and then roll the chickpeas in them. Next time I get higher quality stuff, not the chickpeas someone left in my pantry a year ago :-/ Great idea though!

  34. Stef January 31, 2012 at 12:41 pm #

    Several of you have been asking about the consistency – they should be crunchy. If they aren’t, keep cooking them until they are.

  35. KW February 9, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

    I use my own blend without a “real” recipe. I take a can of chickpeas and drizzle olive oil, dash of salt, splash of lemon juice, and fairly heavily sprinkled with cumin and garlic. Can’t wait to try a sweeter version of the chickpea. Thanks.

  36. Tracey February 10, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    Do you just drain the beans or do you rinse them too?

  37. Stef February 15, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

    Tracey – I just drained them.

  38. Nicole February 15, 2012 at 8:16 pm #

    These were absolutely delicious! I wish I’d made more than one can.

  39. STAY AT HOME CHEF February 15, 2012 at 8:47 pm #

  40. Anonymous February 16, 2012 at 2:15 am #

    Did anyone have a problem with the beans popping in the oven? A few popped right off the baking pan, fell under the shelf and promptly started burning and smoking up my whole kitchen. How do I get the beans to stay on the pan while roasting?

  41. reholc February 16, 2012 at 3:08 am #

    I have a recipe where I rinse the chickpeas (2 cans), pat dry w/paper towels, then toss in the oil/seasonings in a bowl. I use sea salt, fresh ground pepper & freshly grated parmesan. Bake for 50 minutes or until crunchy.

  42. Heidi February 16, 2012 at 8:09 am #

    I just made these and they are delicious!!!!! I used walnut oil instead of olive oil and replaced the cinnamon with 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice. I rinsed my chickpeas and let them drain for a while before I baked them. Yummy!!!

  43. Stampinsilvia February 16, 2012 at 9:36 am #

    I love love love these! My hubby is not a fan of the sweet snacks so I made them with olive oil, garlic poweder and some sea salt…delish!!!

  44. Unoaked Chardonnay February 16, 2012 at 11:04 am #

    We were won over by the words “minimal effort” and also “cinnamon.” Have some chickpeas in the oven right now and cannot wait. Maybe we’ll mix the sweet & salty chickpeas WITH the popcorn. Whoa! — Thank you!

  45. Brooke February 17, 2012 at 1:37 pm #

    Mine are popping off the tray too! They’re not burning yet, but I’m ready to take action for when they do!

  46. Brooke February 17, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    I used my bulk chickpeas. I only soaked them for 4 hours. Mine popped like popcorn and burned while still having quite of bit of time left on the timer. I bet if I had soaked them for another four hours, they would have done better. My young girls are eating the burnt ones anyways.

  47. Katie L. February 18, 2012 at 1:01 pm #

    I just made these but didn’t have cinnamon so I used nutmeg and it was really overpowering the sugar/salt. I’d like to try again with cinnamon instead. I definitely think that would be better. Thanks for sharing!!

  50. Carla Mowell February 21, 2012 at 8:56 am #

    I agree with the comment to toss in the oil and THEN sprinkle with sugar, etc. In fact, I’ve put back in the oven for 5min and retoasting – next time I may do the oil and spices first. Also, I used chai spices instead and it came out really delicious. variations are endless!

  51. Leia =) February 22, 2012 at 8:13 am #

    I’ve made a similar version of chickpeas, except I fry them instead of roasting them. They are absolutely wonderful with dried rosemary and garlic powder!

  52. SuburbanWifeLife February 25, 2012 at 7:21 pm #

    I add garlic and cayenne and cinnamon and sugar so that they are sweet and spicy. I agree with you,they certainly are addictive.

  53. Emily February 27, 2012 at 7:31 pm #

    I just made these tonight (admittedly from another, but similar, recipe)! They were SO good. My recipe wasn’t sweet, it called for salt, coriander, paprika, cumin, curry, chili powder, and garlic powder (1 tsp. of each, except salt which is to taste, for one can of chickpeas). SO, SO delicious. My kids and I devoured them!

  54. suebat22 March 1, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    rosemary, dried chilli flakes and sea salt…..WOW

  55. Ethan March 3, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    I made a variation of these today–
    – Drain & Rinse 15oz can of chickpeas
    – 1-tsp of salt, paprika, ground black pepper, cumin
    – 1-tsp of olive oil
    – 1-Tsp of red pepper flakes

    Combine everything in a bowl and mix. Place the mixture on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes at 390*

    They’re done when they’re crunchy, be careful not to burn them :) Very hot/peppery mixture.

  56. Anonymous March 4, 2012 at 9:40 pm #

    Thank you for this …. I used dried that had been cooked 2 days ago. I loved them and can’t wait to try different variations. I think you need to make sure the peas are quite dry before cooking to get that nice crunchiness.

  57. Anonymous March 5, 2012 at 4:29 pm #

    so, we bought a bag of dried garbanzo beans, soaked them for a few days and then put them in the oven. some turned out crunchy, some popped right off the pan! some were still soft and not quite as good. we had lots of fun making different seasonings, and will be making this again. next time, with friends and have a taste test/seasoning contest. thank you!

  61. Anne March 20, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    Loved these! My oven must be super hot because i had to pull them out after 20 minutes and even then some of them burnt. Next time I’ll try it at 400 degrees instead. thanks for sharing!!

  64. Cindy in GA March 31, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

    Mine are currently popping all over the oven… I hope the ones that stay on pan will come out alright w/out a smokey flavor. I’d love to hear if anyone comes up with a solution for this. My chick peas are straight out of the can, rinsed and drained.

    • Cindy in GA March 31, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

      I turned down the oven to 400 with about 10 minutes left. Just took them out, and they’re black. ????

  65. Anonymous April 4, 2012 at 8:55 am #

    Very yummy, and very satisfying! I had trouble with the sugar sticking to the hot beans though, even with the oil – Am I missing something?

    I would suggest taking them out and stirring them a few times during baking, especially in the later half of baking, as I found many peas in the center of the pan were soft, and ones on the edges were a little burnt.

    Going to try a savoury version of these soon – You’ve got me hooked!


  66. patti vincent April 5, 2012 at 5:52 pm #

    Where do you get lime salt? I tried the original recipe. Good but I was thinking the whole time that I’d like something with ceyenne pepper. Lime salt sounds great!

    That’s so funny — I was reading this and thinking, “Well, I have a pouch of those things from The Good Bean so maybe I’ll try this recipe when I run out…” Sarah, can you create a new variety with something like Herbes de Provence? The chili lime ones are too spicy for me, but I want another savory option other than just plain salt or pepper. Just some customer feedback. :-) Thanks for your good beans!!

    No chickpeas are garbonzo beans, they are a soft bean. When you buy them uncooked in the bean section (in a plastic bag) they are hard, but once you cook them they are soft, like a kidney bean.

    seriously, you threw them out? what a waste. just cook them longer until they are crunchy. we did two cans for about 45 minutes. added ginger to the mix and used sea salt. SO frickin good. i want to make more right now because this batch is not going to last.

    I’m going to make these now, possibly with this spice mixture from “Blackened Tilapta Baja Tacos” on Pinterest.

    This is my new favorite spice mixture. I use it all the time.
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

    What a great way to use up leftovers! I always seem to have half a can left after making some other recipe. I tried your recipe, and it was surprisingly good.

    Any idea of the calorie count?

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
    post was good. I don’t know who you are but definitely you’re going to a
    famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

    These taste great, but 30 minutes was too long as half of the chickpeas burned. Will try again and cook for only 15-20 minutes.

    These are so good!
