Air Fryer Chickpeas
These air fryer chickpeas are the easiest healthy snack you can make at home. The chickpeas are perfectly crispy, and can be seasoned to your preferences.
- 1 can chickpeas (400 g / 14 oz)
- pinch of salt
First, drain and rinse your chickpeas.
Preheat your air fryer to 200 °C / 390 °F. Then, add the chickpeas to your air fryer. Try to keep the chickpeas in a single layer, and don’t overcrowd the air fryer. This is key to getting them crispy!
Air fry the chickpeas for 5 minutes. Then, spray the chickpeas with some cooking oil, and air fry them for another 5 minutes.
Add your choice of seasoning to the chickpeas, and air fry for another 5 minutes, or until they are completely crispy.
Serve the chickpeas immediately, or allow them to cool down before serving.
Leftover air fryer chickpeas can be stored in airtight containers for up to 2 days at room temperature.
