Ingredients
  • 1 (15 ounce) Can Chickpeas – rinsed, drained well and thoroughly dried*
  • 1 TBS + 1 tsp Olive Oil , divided
  • ½ tsp Flaky Sea Salt , or more to taste
  • 2 TBS Honey
  • ¼ tsp Ground Ginger , or more to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven: Arrange baking rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Oven dry chickpeas: Spread the chickpeas out on a rimmed baking sheet. Place chickpeas in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until chickpeas are completely dry.
  3. Toss dried chickpeas with oil: Remove chickpeas from oven. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with salt. Use your hands or a large spoon to evenly coat the chickpeas. Spread the chickpeas out in an even layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Roast chickpeas: Roast the chickpeas in the oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring or shaking the pan halfway through. Chickpeas are done roasting when they are golden brown and crunchy.
  5. While chickpeas are roasting: In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining teaspoon of oil with honey. Season with a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  6. Toss chickpeas with honey: Remove chickpeas from oven and transfer to bowl of oil/honey mixture. Sprinkle with ginger. Stir well to coat completely. Return chickpeas to baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer. Roast again for 5-8 minutes, or until honey is caramelized. OPTIONAL: For truly crispy chickpeas, turn the oven off after roasting and allow the chickpeas to sit in the warm oven for an additional 15-20 minutes before serving.
  7. Serve: Sprinkle with more flakey salt and ground ginger. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes
  1. To get truly crispy chickpeas you need to rinse, drain and dry the canned chickpeas really well! I recommend rinsing and draining the chickpeas then transferring them to a dish towel or thick layer of paper towels. Pat the chickpeas dry and then let them air dry. The more moisture you remove from the chickpeas, the crispier they will be. While removing the skin from the chickpeas will ensure crispier roasted chickpeas, you don’t have to painstakingly remove all the skin if you do not want to. Simply remove and discard any excess skin that comes off while you are thoroughly drying the chickpeas.
  2. Crispy chickpeas will keep in a paper bag or a container on the counter for 4-5 days. Leave the lid on the container cracked open to prevent moisture buildup and to keep the chickpeas crispy.
