Remember when I told you about roasted chickpeas in my article about the 10 best gut health snacks? Well, today I’ll tell you how to make them, so you don’t have to go around searching the internet for a recipe. Isn’t that convenient!? So read on to find the best recipe for roasted chickpeas and toppings!
This recipe doesn’t take much to make! Just have a (or multiple) cans of chickpeas, some oil and spices you like in the house and you’re good to go! Just always have this gut healthy snack ready, even for the most unexpected food cravings!
Chickpeas are part of the legumes / pulses family. This group of plant-based products is packed with fiber, protein and some carbohydrates. Al of this is necessary for a healthy food pattern. The fiber helps feed the gut microbiome, the protein is important for muscle building and repair of the body and the carbohydrates can be broken down for energy.
When used for baking or heating, always pick a traditional olive oil over an extra vierge one. The extra vierge olive oil has a lower temperature to burn it, and you don’t want to eat burnt oil! Apart from olive oil, you could also use avocado oil, rapeseed oil or rice oil.
You can go all-out with the toppings! Anything you can think of that sounds tasty to you can do the trick! Maybe paprika powder, some salt, honey, lime, cinnamon, marmite, italian herbs, cacao powder, gingerpowder, nutmeg, nutritional yeast and so on! Cover them when they’re hot and enjoy!
This snack is even low FODMAP, as long as you can stick to the recommended portion size of 42 grams! It might be a bit of a challenge, but you don’t want to miss out on this tasty snack!
Also, this is a great way to try the reintroduction of Oligosaccharides – GOS! According to the reintroduction schedule, you could start day 1 with 84 grams, day 2 with 112 grams, and day 3 with 168 grams. That is not a chore with this snack!

- Baking tray
- 2 cans chickpeas 400 grams total
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- maple syrup / honey and cinnamon
- cacao powder
- paprika powder
- anything that sounds tasty to you! Go crazy!
- Drain the cans of chickpeas and dry them a little more with a towel. Allow them to dry in the open air for about 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven at 220 degrees celsius and place the chickpeas on a baking tray in the oven for 20-30 minutes. Some will pop, that's okay.
- Remove the chickpeas from the oven after 20-30 minutes when they are slightly brown and crispy.
- Add the topping / flavor of choice. I liked them best with a little maple syrup and cinnamon or just with a little salt on top! Eat them while they are warm. But they're also tasty when they're cool!
