Cinnamon-Sugar Roasted Chickpeas


  • 1 (15 oz) can chickpeas
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Serving Size: 2 Cups

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and add some coconut oil to help prevent chickpeas from sticking.

2. In a large strainer, rinse the chickpeas with cold water. Spread them onto paper towels and pat dry (the drier the chickpea, the crunchier the chickpea will be when baked).

3. Once 100% dry, place chickpeas into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

4. Remove chickpeas from the oven, but keep the oven on. Drizzle chickpeas with coconut oil. Using a large spoon or spatula, mix the chickpeas around to make sure they are evenly coated. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together, then sprinkle over chickpeas and stir to evenly coat.

5. Place coated chickpeas back in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.

6. After chickpeas are done, keep them in the oven. Turn the oven off and slightly crack open the oven door. Allow the chickpeas to sit inside as the oven cools down for 30 minutes. This allows them to get crunchier.

7. Remove from the oven. Enjoy slightly warm or cool them completely before enjoying. Store in a container for up to 1 week, however, the chickpeas are best the day you prepare them!
