These Easy Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas are a tasty, healthy treat! They contain all of the flavor of buffalo wings, but none of the fat. Serve these up at your game day party or enjoy them as an every day snack.
It’s hard to believe that we are over halfway through January! Believe it or not, I still have a few Christmas decorations that I need to take down. Life has been busy! However, I have stayed true to my goal of following a plant based diet for the month of January, aka Veganuary. It has been fun trying out and creating new recipes. One thing I made this week that was so simple, but packed with flavor is these Easy Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas. They make a terrific snack and will be a fantastic healthy, vegetarian treat to take to a Super Bowl Party.

Why use Chickpeas?
I love using chickpeas in a variety of recipes like Vegetarian Chicken Salad. They are an excellent source of plant based protein and they are packed with other nutrients as well. Chickpeas take on other flavors well and make a great alternative to meat in recipes for people following a vegan or vegetarian diet.
What is in the Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas?
This spicy snack is super easy to make and contains just eight ingredients:
How do I make the Easy Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas?
There are just a few steps to make this yummy snack. Start by preheating the oven to be 425 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Then, pour chickpeas into a colander and rinse with cool water.
Next, spread the chickpeas onto paper towels to dry them so the seasoning will stick. Place them in a medium bowl and add the hot sauce, olive oil, paprika, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Toss them until the chickpeas are well coated with seasonings.
Spread the the chickpeas into a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Then, pop them into the oven and bake until crisp. This will take about 40 minutes, but keep an eye on them as they tend to go from crisp to burnt quickly! Once they are crisp, remove from oven and cool for about 10 minutes in pan before serving.
How do I store the Buffalo Chickpeas?
They can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 5 to 7 days.
How spicy are the Chickpeas?
The level of spice can be adjusted depending on how much you like it. If you like a mild spice, use less cayenne pepper. However, if you like to really heat it up, add more!
Are there other ways I can use the Buffalo Chickpeas?
This tasty plant based snack is delicious all on it’s own. However, they are so versatile and can be added to other recipes. I love them as a topping on soups or salads!
