Cajun Roasted Chickpeas

These Cajun Roasted Chickpeas are spicy, super easy and a super tasty snack!


  • 2 (15 oz) cans garbanzo beans , (also known as chickpeas)
  • Cooking spray
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans and then spread them in a single layer on a clean dish towel. Pat dry with another towel and allow them to sit and dry for another 5 minutes. Transfer the chickpeas to a single layer on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, shaking the pan (or stirring the chickpeas) every 10 minutes.
  • While the chickpeas are roasting, combine all the spices listed and stir until well mixed.
  • Remove the chickpeas from the oven and spray them with cooking spray to coat. Immediately transfer the chickpeas to a mixing bowl while still hot and sprinkle the seasonings over the top. Mix together until chickpeas are well coated.
  • Spread the seasoned chickpeas back onto the baking sheet and return them to the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Turn the oven off and leave the chickpeas in for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
