Air Fryer Chickpeas

What You Need:

-Chickpeas -Cooking Oil -Seasoning of choice


Rinse and Drain

Rinse and drain chickpeas. If you want, you can take the extra step to towel-dry the chickpeas for maximum crispiness.


Place the chickpeas in a bowl and drizzle cooking oil over the chickpeas. Stir the chickpeas well until they are evenly coated in oil.

Drizzle with Oil


Preheat the air fryer to 400ºF (if your air fryer does not have a pre-heat function, simply let it run with an empty basket for about 3 minutes at 400ºF). Add the chickpeas to the basket and spread them into a single layer.

Preheat Air Fryer


Cook the chickpeas in the air fryer for 10 minutes, shaking the basket after 5 minutes. (Photo above is after 5 minutes of cooking)

Cook and Shake


At ten minutes, shake the basket again and test the chickpeas for doneness. Add 2-3 minutes of cooking time or until they reach your desired level of crispness. We liked our chickpeas at 13 minutes when they were deliciously crispy and slightly cracked open like a kernel of popcorn.

Cook until Crispy


Add the air-fried chickpeas to a bowl, add the remaining teaspoon of oil and stir to coat. Add seasoning and or salt to your liking and stir to coat again. Enjoy!
