Chickpeas are healthy, versatile, tasty little bites in itty bitty packages. If you are new to chickpeas, you will soon find they are super yummy...and they can be used in so many different ways! If you're already a chickpea lover, well, then you already know how fabulous they are!

This recipe roasts canned chickpeas in your air fryer. Roasting chickpeas transforms the soft little legumes into crispy little balls. I've always roasted my chickpeas in the oven, but once I tried them in the air fryer, I knew I would use that method more often than not. The air fryer cooks them super quickly and gives them and even, golden brown crispness.

The ranch seasoning is the perfect addition to these crisp chickpeas. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do!

HOW TO MAKE CHICKPEAS IN THE AIR FRYER

Roasted chickpeas can be made in the air fryer super easily! Canned chickpeas are drained and rinsed, tossed with olive oil, then air fried for 15 minutes at 390 degrees F. The chickpeas are shaken several times during cooking and sprinkled with ranch seasoning towards the end of the cook time. See below for a detailed ingredients list and instructions.
