This is such a fun snack to make using garbanzo beans, plus seasoning. The chickpeas get crispy with just a bit of coconut oil.
I wanted to share this recipe with you for Cinnamon Chickpea Crispies that I learned about on the Dr. Fuhrman section of the Dr. Oz show this week. The recipe featured on the show was for Italian Chickpea Popcorn, but I made a slightly different version.
I started with one can of garbanzo beans (also called chickpeas) that I drained, rinsed and put in a medium bowl. I then poured some coconut oil over them along with some cinnamon and dried herbs:
I then poured them onto a baking sheet and cooked them for 45 minutes at 350 degrees:
“Popcorn” is a pretty good description of the final product, they get really crunchy and delicate. I decided to call my version Cinnamon Chickpea Crispies.

Here is the recipe:
- 1 (15-ounce) can of garbanzo beans or 1½ cups, drained and rinsed
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil (liquified)
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon no-salt seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine garbanzo beans, coconut oil, cinnamon, garlic powder and no-salt seasoning in a medium bowl and stir to combine.
- Pour onto a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring once during cooking. Sprinkle with salt when finished and serve hot or at room temperature.
I will be making these again!
