Roasted Za'atar Chickpeas In The Air Fryer

If you are on the lookout for a moreish snack that is also healthy and easy to make, then you are in luck. This Roasted Za'atar Chickpeas in The Air Fryer recipe has been on repeat around here for the past couple of months. Roasted chickpeas are little powerhouses of goodness, and the punch of flavor you get from the za'atar is just delicious. These pack well in lunch boxes, and also make a tasty addition to salads and dips. I love adding a little handful to the top of a fresh batch of Roasted Garlic and Pumpkin Hummus for some extra flavor and crunch.

  • Air Fryer


  • 1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon za'atar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  • Rinse and drain the chickpeas.
  • Place the chickpeas in a large bowl, add the za’atar, maple syrup, and olive oil. Mix well to make sure everything is combined and the chickpeas are well coated.
  • Place the coated chickpeas in the basket of the air fryer. 
  • Select 400˚F (200C), and roast for 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes remove the basket of the air fryer and give it a good shake so that all the chickpeas are cooked evenly. 
  • Serve as a snack, or on top of a salad.


Storage Note
Do not store the roasted chickpeas in an airtight container as they will become soggy.
They should be left in a container without a lid, or at least with some airflow so that they stay crispy.
