5-Ingredient Smokey Maple Roasted Chickpeas

The perfect sweet-salty-crunchy combo, 5-Ingredient Smokey Maple Roasted Chickpeas are simple to prepare and are just the thing for snacks, lunches, and as a topping for soups and salads.


  • 1 15- oz can chickpeas drained, rinsed, and dried well with a clean kitchen towel
  • 1 teaspoon olive or avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika


  • Heat the oven to 425F.
  • Add the chickpeas to a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Add the oil, maple syrup, paprika, and salt.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, flip, then bake for 15-20 minutes more until lightly golden brown.

Double the recipe if you want plenty of roasted chickpeas for snacking.
If you don't have smoked paprika, regular will work in its place.
