How Do You Get Them Crunchy or Crispy?
Ok, I have been making these for years in my air fryer. I have gotten it down to a science. The steps need to be followed, so you end up with crispy chickpeas. No one wants a hard snack.
- Drain the chickpeas very well. I usually use a colander and let them drain for about 20 minutes while doing something else.
- Then I lay the drained chickpeas onto a kitchen towel and cover them with another kitchen towel. Again, I leave them there for about 15 to 20 minutes.
- I make sure my chickpeas are coated in olive oil. If the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons, and you think they are still dry, add some more. The olive really helps the chickpeas in the air fryer. Use your hands and coat them.

Can I Re-Crisp The Roasted Chickpeas?
I know we all love our roasted chickpeas, but sometimes they can get a little too crispy and lose their flavor. But don’t worry, there is hope! If you find yourself with that problem or want to change up your flavors, then I have the perfect solution for you: re-crisping them in the oven!
Place the chickpeas back into the air fryer to re-crisp them. Only a couple of minutes will give you a new batch of crispy chickpeas.
