BBQ Roasted Chickpeas Recipe

A crunchy and delicious snack... garbanzo beans (or chickpeas) are oven roasted and tossed with a tasty BBQ seasoning to create these BBQ Roasted Chickpeas. Recipe from Simply Delish by Jessica Merchant
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 1 1/2 cups


  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups canned chickepeas rinsed and drained (I prefer Bush's Beans garbanzo beans)
  • 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, onion powder, brown sugar, garlic salt, chili powder, and pepper.
  3. Pat the chickpeas completely dry with a towel and remove any of the skins that become loose. Add the chickpeas to a bowl and toss them with the olive oil and three-quarters of the spice mixture. Mix well to coat the chickpeas and spread them out on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake the chickpeas for 20 minutes, toss them with a spatula, and bake for 15 minutes more. Remove the pan from the oven and let the chickpeas cool on the baking sheet.
  4. Take the chickpeas and season them with the additional spice mix if needed. If you don't need it, simply place it in a sealed plastic bag and save it for the next batch.
  5. Roasted chickpeas are best the day they are made - after a few hours they can start to lose their crunch. However, you can store them in a container with a sheet of plastic wrap lightly covering the top for 2-3 days.
