Chickpeas In The Airfryer

Are you looking for a healthy yummy snack or a way to spice up that simple summer salad? Try some air fryer chickpeas! This has been a staple in our kitchen this summer when we crave a little salty crunch. Inexpensive, healthy and delicious…what could be better?

The Usual Cast Of Characters

  • 15 ounce can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • Extra virgin olive oil spray
  • 1 teaspoon dried spices of your choice, such as Cajun seasoning, garlic salt, blackened seasoning, montreal steak seasoning, zatar, etc. I am using everything bagel spice mix today!

The Steps to Glory Start with dry chickpeas: Make sure the canned chickpeas are air dried on paper towels before you cook them for best results. Chickpeas that are wet or damp won’t crisp up, and if they do, they won’t stay that way into the next day. Spread the chickpeas out on dry paper towels. Place another towel on top of them, and move the towel across the chickpeas or do as I do and dry them in a salad spinner!

Transfer the dry chickpeas to the air fryer basket in a single layer and air fry 380F about 12 to 15 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes until crunchy on the inside, not moist and golden brown on the outside.

Transfer the chickpeas to a medium bowl while still hot, spritz all over with olive oil and immediately toss with the spices. Eat at room temperature as a snack or over your favorite salad.

  2. Today is the first time I’ve seen recipes for chick peas in a air fryer. Def gonna give them a try. They look tasty and a much better option than hummus to me. Just a note, the other recipe I saw recommended smashing them slightly and removing the skins to make them crunch up better and faster. I’ll have to try both methods. 😊
