Roasted Garbanzo Beans

A simple, easy snack. Choices for your favorite powdered spice can range anywhere from cumin, cayenne, onion, garlic to cinnamon. Be creative!



  • 1 - 14.5 oz. can of garbanzo beans, drained and patted dry
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt plus extra for bean seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper plus extra for bean seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. of your favorite powdered spice, if desired
  • Extra virgin olive oil for drizzling


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Very lightly season garbanzo beans with salt and pepper.

Shake together flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and powdered spice in a large plastic storage bag. Add garbanzo beans and toss to coat.

Remove garbanzo beans from flour mixture, gently dust off excess flour and single layer on a baking sheet. Lightly drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Bake for about 25 to 35 minutes until golden brown, shaking the baking sheet once or twice to roll the beans around.

Do not over bake!

Thanks for the recipe Deelie :) I was looking at several cans of garbanzo beans, and I just didn't want to make hummus, so, those cans always kept going back into the pantry. This sounds really good, and I need those mini meals with protein, or else call them snacks. ;) Kas2
