Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Spice Roasted Chickpeas #SundaySupper

Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Spice Roasted ChickpeasCrunch. Crunch. Crunch.

Everyone seems to love crunchy foods. I love the sound of biting into an apple, that fresh crisp sound, or breaking a piece of celery in half. I know I’ve heard people tell me they crave crunchy foods. That’s strange to me, because I’ve never craved the texture or sound of a food. Ever. I mean, I like the sound, just I wouldn’t pick the food based on the sound.

But when I found out #SundaySupper was doing a Crunchy theme, I knew it was time to get with the program. I thought long and hard on this one. Then I remembered these gems I had found on pinterest a year or so ago.

Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Spice Roasted Chickpeas.

Chickpeas are amazing. And I resisted them for a very, very long time.   And this recipe as written is Vegan, Gluten Free and Dairy Free, and these days it’s getting harder to find an easy but tasty snack that boasts all that.

When I found this recipe on Pinterest, I wrote this recipe down in my recipe notebook and credited them to the blog Peas and Thank You. However, now I can’t find the recipe on her blog anywhere. I thought I might check to see if I could find the recipe elsewhere and instead, what I found… was lot of sites crediting Peas and Thank You. So … the recipe might not be there now, but it was at one point and I wrote it down and here it is.

Oh, and these are super yummy.

We roast chickpeas now all the time, and we love to change up the flavors. But these Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Spice Roasted Chickpeas are very, very mild in flavor and just a really nice snack. A little bit salty, a little bit sweet.

Let’s get started.

You’re going to mix your maple syrup (the real stuff!), canola oil, apple cider vinegar, salt, nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon together in a small bowl. You don’t need one as large as I used as you can clearly see.

You might find some of the outside layers coming off, just remove the ones you can and ignore the rest. Won’t change anything.

Once rinsed, pat them dry with paper towels to get them as dry as you can. Coat them in the syrup mixture evenly.

Lay them out flat on a baking pan and bake them at 350 for 25-30 minutes gently stirring them around every 10 minutes to keep them from sticking (they WILL stick, so be sure to watch this). ENJOY!

    It’s funny, chickpeas plain I’m kind of meh about (it’s that beany texture they have) but whirred into hummus or roasted or friend, I’m all in! Love this.

    Just a little sanity check here. Is there a step missing in the directions? Do you need to mix the chickpeas with the spice mix before baking? Thanks. This recipe sounds like it would make a really delicious snack.

    It’s funny you mentioned people craving the sound of food. It drives me nuts when other people are eating crunchy food. It’s an actual disease with a name (that I can’t remember right now) but I can’t stand it. I do still like crunchy foods, though, and have been wanting to try roasted chickpeas for a long time.

    I’ve been waiting for this one since I saw your title, Nicole! I love roasted chickpeas but have never attempted them myself. Your flavors sounds absolutely delicious! Pinning on my Recipes to Try board!

    Thank goodness you wrote the recipe down, Nicole, before the original site went down! I’ve been wanting to roast chickpeas for a long time but have never gotten around to it. These look amazing and your photos are beautiful. I can just imagine how satisfyingly crunchy these are and I love that you made them pumpkie pie flavoured. Delicious!

    I love chickpeas and have enjoyed them roasted at restaurants. I never thought to actually make them at home…until now!

    Thanks for a delicious recipe. I am wondering if they will still roast as nicely if I bake them on parchment paper. What do you think?

    I love chick peas. This is one of those great recipes that you can do while preparing other things in your kitchen. Definitely going to try this.
