• These sound delicious! But I was wondering about the caloric value. For a person trying to cut down on calories, how would they fare with 1 1/2 Tablespoons of oil, especially if eaten at one sitting.(on another website they said the roasted garbanzo beans only last 10 minutes before they’re all eaten) :-)

    • Hi Kayla, It’s true…roasted chickpeas are highly addicting and once you roast both cans, it doesn’t really look like all that much, so it’s really easy to eat them all at one sitting. If you did that, using the 1 1/2 Tablespoons of oil, you’d be looking at roughly 1233 calories for 2 cans of beans (which is what the recipe calls for). Of course, they’re much higher in fiber and protein than chips, and there’s less fat in them than you would get from nuts, but there’s still a few calories there.

    Just came across this site from The Book Hostess…thank goodness I did!! I gave up drinking alcohol for Lent and find that I want to snack at night (when I used to have a glass of wine) and popcorn is getting old. These are perfect! Thanks for sharing. Going to make 3 batches with different flavors tonight. Yep, not drinking also opens up a LOT of time to cook. :)

  • I just tried my own recipe for candied roasted chickpeas. It worked out well!

    They’re sweet, carmel-y and salty.
    Here’s my blog post link for them:

    I was just wondering if you can store these and for how long. I only eat 1/2 cup at a time. They really fill you up. Obviously the recipe makes much more than that so I need to know if I can store them or if I have to make my husband finish them of every time I make them

    • Hi Nicole.

      Yes, you can save these. I’ve stored them in an open container and munched on them for a couple of days. As long as they are crunchy when you first make them. If they are a bit on the softer side when you first make them, they will get softer the longer they sit. But you can make them crunchy again by popping them back into the oven.

  • i’ve never had the pleasure of preparing meals with chickpeas yet, but this looks like something fun to do – especially because it can be eaten as a snack! crunchy and roasted sounds so good!

  • Girl you are funny, loved the description of your salad “big pile of lettuce covered with puffs of some kind of calorie free air” I’m laughing but I should be crying because that was exactly my lunch today.
    I’ll try that tomorrow it looks delicious. ;-)

    January 12, 2010
    • I hope your air puffs were delicious ;) . I feel for ya! I think you’ll be really happy with the crunchy garbanzos and you won’t feel guilty eating them.

      January 13, 2010
  • Thanks for the recipe, I’ve never roasted a chickpea but will have to try them, they look tasty.

    January 12, 2010
