Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, cinnamon, cumin, allspice, salt and pepper. Add chickpeas and toss to coat thoroughly. Turn chickpeas out onto baking sheet and roast, stirring or shaking baking sheet often, until chickpeas are browned and crunchy, 45 to 50 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool before serving, stirring occasionally.
I thought this was a great recipe. I stirred every 5- 10 mins to keep from burning. Stirred every 10 in the beginning and every 5-7 toward the end. I stirred every time I would start to get a strong smell of spices. The house smelled heavenly! I tweaked the spices just a touch. I used more cinnamon and reduced the cumin and allspice, using 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp cumin, 3/4 allspice, 1 tsp salt, and the pepper. I thought the allspice and cumin might be too over powering, but they weren't. I may try the original measurements of the spices next time. I will definitely make these again. They make a great snack and would be great on salad of vegetables.
I really liked this recipe! I'll probably tweak the ingredients just a little to come up with a flavor I love.I didn't have the same problem with the burning or smell in my house. I turned/rolled them around often, about every 6-7 minutes so they wouldn't burn. I only made 1/2 recipe, so it took about 40 minutes.
BEWARE!! the 400 degree temp CANNOT be right. My house smells like burned chickpeas as I type this! and they were only in there about 30 mins at 395. Might be good if they didn't burn to a crisp. My whole kitchen is full of stinky smoke. arrrrgh! waste of ingredients.
