Cinnamon Baked Chickpeas

As a child, I loved most all beans, but I would not eat chickpeas.  There was something about them that just turned me off.  It wasn’t until I got to college and learned that hummus was made from chickpeas that I gave their “natural” form a try.  And of course, I loved them!  

Our family does not eat a lot of legumes/beans, but when we do one of our favorite ways to prepare them is to bake them in the oven.  They can be made sweet or savory.  Today’s recipe is a simple sweet version: cinnamon baked chickpeas.


Cinnamon Baked Chickpeas


  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pink salt


  1. Open can of chickpeas.  Drain and rinse them.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl add chickpeas, cinnamon and pink salt.  Mix until chickpeas are coated.
  3. Spread coated chickpeas on a *lined baking sheet
  4. Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes

*I used a silicon baking mat but you may use parchment paper or oil so that the chickpeas do not stick to the baking pan.

They make great salad toppers!
