  • 30 oz. chickpeas (two 15 oz. cans)
  • 3 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • 2 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt (more/less to taste)
  • Optional: smoked paprika or chipotle powder for a kick (start small, it’s strong!)


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a rimmed baking pan with parchment paper (or Silpat). Set aside.
  • Rinse and drain chickpeas. Lightly pat them dry on a towel. (Removing excess moisture helps them become crispier.)
  • Add chickpeas and all ingredients to a medium bowl. Stir to thoroughly combine and coat.
  • Spread out the seasoned chickpeas on the baking pan. (Give the pan a little shake, and they’ll naturally spread out.)
  • Bake for about 25 minutes (or until desired crispiness) stirring halfway through.


Yield: This makes a fairly large batch, so halve the recipe if desired.
Storing: Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge. Be aware they do soften and lose their crispy texture when stored.
