How to Cook Chickpeas With An Extra Punch of Protein

Jessica Danger

almost 3 years ago

Everyone talks about meal prep, but no one talks about snack prep. One of our resident Snack Experts, Tiara Wasner, recently whipped up a batch of Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas. You can eat them on their own, pack em in a spicy trail mix, or toss them in a salad. And with the added benefits of BUBS Naturals collagen coating these bad boys, you can rest easy that your snack packs just as big a punch as your meal.

Roasted Chili Lime Chickpeas


  • 15 oz chickpeas rinsed (drained, rinsed, and dried)

  • 1 tbsp Cobram Estate USA EVOO


  • 2 tsp BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein Powder

  • 1/2 tbsp Trader Joes Chili lime Seasoning

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 F.

  • Chickpeas – rinse, drain, and pat dry. FYI, Rinsing canned chickpeas removes excess starch resulting in crunchier chickpeas. (Pro tip: Dry with a kitchen towel.)

  • Spread chickpeas on a greased baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes. Remember, we are roasting naked chickpeas, no seasoning yet.

  • Remove slightly cooked chickpeas from oven, add olive oil, all the seasonings, and put it back on a baking sheet. Bake until done. Roughly 35-40 minutes. While roasting, give a baking sheet a few shakes for even roasting.

  • Let the chickpeas cool on the baking sheet before storing in an airtight container. They’ll stay crunchy for up to a week.

If you make a batch of these, let us know. Tag us @BUBSNaturals and show us what ya got!
