You are probably wondering what would possess a person to roast chickpeas…unless you’ve done it before. They’re amazing! It’s kind of a cross between a peanut and a cashew in terms of texture and flavor. They’re crunchy but still kind of creamy. It’s a wonderful option for snacking.

WW roasted chickpeas are light, healthy, and packed with fiber and protein. I love to use them in salads. If you are vegan or vegetarian I’m sure you know about the benefits of adding them to meals and using WW roasted chickpeas for snacking.

Notes for making sure these Weight Watchers roasted chickpeas come out perfectly:

The chickpeas MUST be dry to the touch before roasting so that they crisp up adequately. For the ultimate amount of crispiness, allow them to air dry on a paper towel for an hour before seasoning and roasting.

Be sure not to use too much olive oil as well, or your chickpeas may not reach that super crispy finish.

After the chickpeas have been roasted, if you find that you prefer a more intense lemon flavor, squeeze lemon juice over them before serving.

For more Mediterranean-style flavor, consider adding a teaspoon of Za’atar or dried thyme, rosemary, and/or parsley to the spice mix.
