Gather your ingredients. Drain and rinse the chickpeas well.
Dry the chickpeas so that they are very dry. You may want to use a salad spinner and then paper towels. You can also spread them on a pan and put them in the oven for a few minute to get the moisture off them.
Place dried chickpeas in a bowl an add olive oil. Mix well so they are all well coated. Spread out on a oven safe pan in a single layer.
Roast for 20 minutes, then stir the chickpeas around. Roast for another 20 minutes or until they reach the crispiness you prefer.
Remove from the oven and either leave plain, or season.
If using a seasoning that is sugary or liquid, add it to the hot chickpeas. Mix well and then spread the coated chickpeas back on the baking sheet. Return to the oven for 5 – 7 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes. This will caramelize the seasoning and dry it out.
Remove from oven and eat warm or cooled.
