Air Fryer Crispy Chickpeas


  • 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried rosemary
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme 
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Toss chickpeas, olive oil, dried rosemary, dried thyme, mustard powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Transfer chickpeas to basket of an air fryer. Spread evenly.
  4. Cook chickpeas in the air fryer for 6 minutes; shake the basket. Continue cooking for 6 minutes more; check chickpeas and continue cooking in 2 minute increments until desired crispness is reached.
Mealthy tip:

Try different seasonings! Instead of the rosemary, thyme, and mustard powder use cayenne pepper. Or keep it simple and use salt and black pepper. Garlic powder is also a good seasoning. A touch of sumac and black pepper can be a tangy combination. Curry powder and cumin give a gentle heat with each bite.

I tried this recipe using sumac and black pepper, one of my favorite flavor combinations. I am new to air fryer cooking, and I love the versatility. It cooked the chickpeas perfectly, nice and crunchy. Great snack idea, a nice alternative to potato chips.
