Chickpeas, or garbanzo beans, are packed full of protein and fiber, making them an excellent snack choice. These air fryer crispy chickpeas comes out addictively crunchy and salty, which is what I am often looking for in a snack! You can make them sweet, too, like my original Roasted Honey Cinnamon version.

Air Fryer Crispy Chickpeas are easy to make, you can add so many flavoring options to them, just like with popcorn! They’re crunchy, salty, and tiny so they’re easy to grab and chomp. If I can keep them around long enough before they’re devoured, I like to stash them in a mason jar in my car or purse so they’re always on hand when we’re driving around between school and activities.

  1. I have multiple settings on my air fryer including dehydrate. Should I just use the air fry setting to cook my chickpeas or dehydrate?

  2. is the non stick part of the air fryer made of a healthier version / material for cooking than regular non stick
