Honey roasted chickpeas. A sweet twist on classic roasted chickpeas. Repin to save!By now, we’ve all tried traditional roasted garbanzo beans. They’re Internet-famous, after all. And super tasty.

After making several batches of the traditional kind, I decided to experiment with a sweeter version. One that is roasted in butter and sweetened with honey.

The verdict?

These honey roasted garbanzo beans (chickpeas) are surprisingly addictive. Like other roasted garbanzo beans, they have a nice crunch to them. But what makes them different is a slight sweetness.

So if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to potato chips or crackers, this is a good snack recipe to have up your sleeve.

Honey-Roasted Garbanzo Beans

Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

A note about baking time: Like other roasted garbanzo beans, you want to cook these long enough so they have a nice crunch. Otherwise, you'll end up with mushy chickpeas. Test a couple around the 40 minute mark to check for crunchiness.


  • 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • Pinch of fine grain sea salt


Preheat oven to 400F. Blot chickpeas with a paper towel to remove excess water. Place chickpeas on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, mix melted butter and honey together in a small bowl. After chickpeas have baked for 30 minutes, remove from oven and pour on the honey butter mixture. Stir to evenly coat. Sprinkle on a small amount of salt. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes or so, until chickpeas are completely crunchy.
