  1. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F for 10 minutes or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  2. Dry the chickpeas thoroughly on paper towels or a clean kitchen towel. They can be dried in a salad spinner, but some might get lost a few depending on the design of the spinner. Discard any skins that come off of the chickpeas during this step.

  3. Combine the oil and spice mix in a bowl and whisk to combine. Gently incorporate the chickpeas until coated.

  4. Transfer to the preheated air fryer and air fry for 8 to 10 minutes until crispy. Taste one of the chickpeas; if it’s not as crispy as desired, then continue to cook for another 1 to 3 minutes. Some of the chickpeas may look as though they have “popped.” Don’t fret if that happens!

  5. Remove from the basket to a bowl, taste, and add more salt, pepper, or seasoning to liking. Serve immediately; the crispy chickpeas will not keep.
