Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Chickpeas Recipe

roasted chickpeas

One cup of chickpeas has 39 grams of protein, making these tasty roasted legumes a nice mid-morning or afternoon power boost.  You can easily adjust their sweetness to your liking by varying the amount of sugar used to coat the chickpeas after roasting them making for a healthier snack!

I enjoy these roasted chickpeas so much, the first time I made them the amount that made it to the jar to save for later was way less than what came out of the oven!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 °F. Line a jelly-roll pan (or other pan with sides) with parchment paper.
  2. Drain chickpeas and rinse well. Spread them out on a towel to dry.
  3. While chickpeas are drying, combine olive oil, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  4. When chickpeas are no longer wet (damp is okay), spread them on the parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake chickpeas approximately 45 minutes or until crispy, but not too dark (or they may taste burned). If chickpeas are still soft on the inside, bake a little longer, checking often.
  6. Remove baked chickpeas from oven and immediately toss them in the oil, honey and spices mixture to coat well.
  7. Sprinkle coated chickpeas with sugar and toss again to coat well.
  8. To caramelize coating,spread coated chickpeas back on parchment-lined baking sheet and return to the oven for 10 more minutes.
  9. Caramelized chickpeas will be very hot when removed from the oven. Allow to cool before eating. Store leftover chickpeas in an airtight container.

  1. I’ve been hearing you talk about these for sometime now and decided to try them. They were very easy to make. My daughter (7) and I made them for an afternoon snack and just loved them. The two of us ate all of them. Since the recipe already had honey as a sweetener, my daughter recommended leaving off the sugar. Since they were then sticky, we ate them with spoons. Definitely will make these again. Thank you very much for sharing the recipe. What a great healthy filling after school snack.

    • Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for letting us know that you tried the chickpeas! Aren’t they good? This recipe is the most-viewed one on our website (thanks to Pinterest, I think!). Your daughter had a good suggestion to leave off the extra sugar, too. I’m going to mention it in the next episode so other people might try that as well. 🙂 Thanks again…it’s good to hear from you! And give your daughter a special hug from me!

      Peace & Veggies,
      Larissa

  2. Thank you will try I don’t like chickpeas with sauce. However, I love hummus and now you have given me a recipe with my favorite ingredients cinnamon and nutmeg. I will make this and get back to you.

    • Hi Brighteyes!

      Love the name! 🙂 I hope you enjoy the roasted chickpeas. Chickpeas can be a little “hard to swallow” just cooked plain by themselves, but roasting them really brings out their flavor and gives a nice crunch. And you can never go wrong with cinnamon and nutmeg! Do let us know how you like them!

      Peace & Veggies,
      Larissa

  3. I made this recipe, but I also made one and switched the cinnamon and nutmeg for Chipotle pepper and smoked paprika. (Sweet and spicy!)

    • Ooh…nice switch-up, Shari! Roasted peas and nuts really are so versatile! Thanks for sharing your suggestion.

      Peace & Veggies,

      Larissa
