When you look for a tasty and healthy homemade snack recipe, what criteria makes it a “yes please” snack? For me, the recipe has to be EASY, no funky ingredients that I never use, delicious, and of course HEALTHY. If your preferences are similar to mine, then this healthy oil-free roasted chickpea recipe is exactly what you’re looking for.
With only 3 ingredients and less than 5 minutes prep time, this is just about the easiest healthy snack you could make from home. Not to mention, it’s about 5 bucks cheaper to make yourself instead of buying from the grocery store.
Aside from how easy it is to make this delicious chickpea snack, can we talk about how nutritious roasted chickpeas are for you?
My recipe uses no oil, so if you’re looking for a low fat snack these chickpeas will definitely check that box. In 1/2 cup of chickpeas, there are 135 calories, 22 carbs, 2g fat, 7g protein, and 6g fiber. If you eat plant based, chickpeas are a must-have in your diet because of their natural high protein content. In addition, the fiber will help keep you full and curb your cravings. And the best part? They are DELICIOUS. Now that you’re on board with this whole chickpea thing, let’s get cookin’!

Save Money with My Favorite FREE Apps and Resources:
Ibotta is my favorite cash back app that I use on my phone to earn cash back whenever I go shopping.
It includes my favorite stores, like Amazon, Target, Costco, Fred Meyer, and Walmart. All you have to do is add items from your recent shopping trip on the app, scan your receipt, and earn instant cash back!
Ebates is my favorite whenever I’m online shopping because I earn cash back from online purchases.
For example, if Ebates is offering 10% cash back for shopping at Target and my order total is $100, I’ll get $10 cash back. Amazing right?!
The easiest way to use Ebates is by downloading their cash back button (after you sign up for free with Ebates and earn your first $10 just for using my link.) Simply click the Ebates cash back button that will pop up on the store website, make your purchase, and Ebates will deposit your cash back into your Ebates account! It would be crazy NOT to use it and earn money back on all your online shopping.
MyPoints is my favorite way to earn Amazon gift cards and AMC movie theater gift cards in my spare time while watching a show or movie. MyPoints is an online rewards program that gives you points for taking surveys, reading e-mails, shopping, doing web searches, and more.
Once you earn a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for a gift card of your choice to over 75 merchants. They also offer free access to coupons to hundreds of different merchants daily.
I’ve already earned 3 $25 AMC gift cards and a $50 Amazon gift card just by using MyPoints while watching Netflix. Sign up and start earning free gift cards here.
