Chickpeas are a great source of protein and fiber – a perfect combo for keeping fuelled on outdoor adventures. These crunchy snacks are savoury and delicious (and perhaps a little addicting). 
Course Snack
Servings 2
Prep Time 12 hours
Dehydrating Time 6 hours


  • 1 Dehydrator


  • 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas,  drained
  • 2 tbsps sugar
  • 1 heaping tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 6 tbsps water


  • 1. Cook chickpeas (or drain and rinse from a can).
  • 2. In a container, combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and water. Stir well to combine. 
  • 3. Add in chickpeas and let marinate for 12 hours.
  • 4. After marinating, drain excess liquid from container and disperse chickpeas onto mesh lined dehydrating trays.
  • 5. Dehydrate at 135℉ for about 6 hours.


  • Don’t let this one marinate for more than 12 hours or else you get a very sticky marinade that gelatinizes and doesn’t dry properly 
  • For extra flavour, sprinkle on more cinnamon right before putting them into the dehydrator 
  • Dehydrating time may vary (the thickness and water content of the ingredients, as well as the humidity and altitude of your environment will impact dehydrating time)
