These Spicy Garlic Thyme Roasted Chickpeas are a healthy, crunchy snack you won’t be able to get enough of! Perfect for snacking on by themselves, using as a salad topper, or adding crunch to your favorite soup recipe.


  • 2 (15 ounce) cans chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed, drained, and dried very well
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a medium saute pan, heat olive oil and garlic until garlic is light brown and toasted. Stir in the chickpeas, coating completely in the olive oil mixture. Stir in the spices.
  2. On a lined baking sheet, spread the chickpea mixture. Bake for 20 minutes. Stir chickpeas. Reduce heat to 375°F and continue baking for another 20 to 30 minutes or until chickpeas are browned and crunchy. This will take longer if your chickpeas weren’t very dry. Enjoy!
