Recipe instructions Air Fryer Chickpeas

  1. Step 1

    Rinse and drain one can of chickpeas well. For extra crispy chickpeas, press the chickpeas between some paper towels or a lint-free kitchen towel to dry.

  2. Step 2

    Add the drained chickpeas to a bowl and drizzle with 2 teaspoons cooking oil. Stir to coat.

  3. Step 3

    Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) (if your air fryer does not have a pre-heat function, let it run empty for 2-3 minutes on 400 degrees F).

  4. Step 4

    Add the chickpeas to the air fryer basket and spread them into a single layer. Air fry the chickpeas for 5 minutes, then shake to stir. Air fry for an additional 5 minutes and shake again. Check the chickpeas for doneness and add 2-3 more minutes or until they reach your desired level of doneness (we do 13 minutes total).

  5. Step 5

    Transfer the air fried chickpeas to a bowl, drizzle with the second 1 teaspoon oil to help the seasoning stick, and stir to coat. Add your favorite seasoning and salt, if needed, then stir to coat again. Enjoy while warm and crispy!
