Ranch Seasoned Air Fryer Chickpeas are simple to make and super delicious! You only need six ingredients and less than half an hour to make them.
Have you tried making roasted chickpeas in the air fryer yet? It’s so quick and easy! And these Ranch Seasoned Air Fryer Chickpeas couldn’t be simpler to make. You only need six ingredients available at any grocery store, and I bet that you already have them on hand right this second.
This recipe is based on my my Ranch Roasted Chickpeas recipe. Ever since Cadry made her air fryer chickpeas, I’ve been wanting to convert one of my old roasted chickpea recipes to an air fryer one. I know that you guys love ranch as much as I do, so Ranch Seasoned Air Fried Chickpeas just felt like the natural place to start.
You’ll notice that in the instructions, it specifies not to rinse the chickpeas. That’s because the liquid in that can of beans, called aquafaba, has a lot of properties similar to eggs in cooking. That little bit of aquafaba that clings to the unrinsed chickpeas adds moisture and a little bit of crunch to the finished recipe. Read more about the magical powers of aquafaba here!
I created a video to go along with this recipe, so you can watch that at the top of the page, or grab the written instructions below!
