Crunchy Air Fryer Chickpeas

Air fryer chickpeas are the perfect crunchy snack to make in 15 minutes! They’re great to throw on top of salads or snack on as is!

Prep: 5 minCook: 15 minTotal: 20 min
Servings: serves 6


  • 1 can (15.5 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400F. 
  2. Drain and rinse your chickpeas and transfer to a medium bowl. 
  3. Add the oil and spices to the bowl and mix until the chickpeas are coated. 
  4. Transfer the chickpeas to your air fryer tray or basket. It’s ok if the chickpeas are a bit crowded or touching, you just want to make sure they’re in an even layer. 
  5. Air fry for 15 minutes, giving the tray or basket a shake halfway through cooking.
