Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? Maybe you’re going to try to save more, or get to the gym a bit more often? You might think this is a perfect time to start a new hobby or eat a little healthier? Though I didn’t really make any resolutions, except to try to be a little thriftier at the grocery, there is just something about a brand new year that makes you want to make some sort of little resolution. 

I think it is the thought of a nice clean slate. It is nice! On New Year’s Day, I decided the very best way to start the year is with a clean house! I scrubbed the floors, counter tops, washed all the sheets, emptied the fridge and it felt so good! The only thing I didn’t do was was the dogs, and their beds. Some battles just aren’t worth fighting! ha!

These Ranch Roasted Chickpeas and a super easy, three-ingredient snack that are surprisingly addictive! They are a little salty, and very crunchy. A great alternative to potato chips if you are counting calories and a perfect addition to salads if you’re looking to add a little crunch.

Ingredients in Oven Roast Chickpeas 

As I said above, this roasted chickpeas snack is made with three simple ingredients. 

  • Canned chickpeas 
  • Ranch seasoning 
  • Olive oil

How to Roast Chickpeas

Carefully pat the chickpeas dry. Once your chickpeas are nice and dry, toss them in olive oil and a pack of ranch seasoning. Then, spread them onto a foil-lined baking sheet and roast until they are nice and crisp!

How Long to Roast Chickpeas? 

If you’re careful to thoroughly dry the chickpeas, they’ll need about 45 minutes in a 400F oven.

How to Store Roasted Chickpeas 

You can store these crispy roasted chickpeas in an airtight container at room temperature. They’ll last up to 2 weeks! 

Tips for Making Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas 

  • The key to nice crunchy chickpeas is to make sure they are very dry. I used two cans of chickpeas and drained and rinsed them then set them out on a towel to dry. You can speed up the process a bit if you want to lightly press them in between a kitchen towel or paper towels. 
  • Note that you should use the powdered ranch seasoning and NOT the prepared ranch dressing. 
  • I love making ranch roasted chickpeas, but you can use any spices you’d like to flavor them.

  • 2 (15 ounce) cans chickpeas, , drained, rinsed, and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package ranch seasoning


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • After you make sure your chickpeas are VERY dry, place them in a large plastic bag or bowl with olive oil and seasoning toss to coat.
  • Spread chickpeas out on a large foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray, or a silicone baking mat.
  • Bake 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes.


Your cooking time may increase if the chickpeas are not completely dry to start with. Every oven is different so I highly suggest monitoring these closely the first time you cook them
