Fried chickpeas - Dr. Axe

Healthy Fried Chickpeas Recipe

  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

These fried chickpeas are one of those healthy fried options. I love them because they’re made from chickpeas, coconut oil and seasonings.


  • 2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of each: cumin, chili powder, garlic, smoked paprika, sea salt, pepper


  1. Dry the chickpeas with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
  2. In a large frying pan over medium low heat, melt the coconut oil.
  3. Add the chickpeas and spices to the pan, and turn the heat to medium. Fry for 10–12 minutes or until desired crispiness.
  4. Serve and enjoy!


  • You can adjust the spices to customize your fried chickpeas. Try curry-flavored ones or Italian-spiced ones.
  • You can swap the coconut oil for the cooking oil of your choice, though it will change the nutrition a bit.
