Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Stir the nutritional yeast and zaatar together. Add the oil and stir until you get an evenly combined mixture.
Put the drained chickpeas in a bowl. Add the zaatar mixture and combine well. The mixture should coat the chickpeas fairly evenly.
Spread the chickpeas out on your lined baking sheet in a single layer (touching is fine). Bake for a total of 45 minutes, giving them a stir about every 20 minutes. Try to move the ones on the edges of the baking sheet to the middle when you stir. This will help them cook more evenly.
Let them cool to room temperature before eating. I hope you love this easy snack option!
This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). If you are looking for a high-energy snack, this dish has got your number. On the other hand, at over 300 calories for ¼ of the recipe, this snack isn’t the best choice for fat loss. I usually save this snack for my teenager or enjoy just 1-2 tablespoons over a salad. (It’s a fun topping alternative to croutons!)I used Pereg’s zahtar seasoning blend here. If you are using another blend with more salt, you may want to cut back on the seasoning in this recipe. Canned chickpeas tend to taste a little salty, even after rinsing. As such, I recommend going light on salt-heavy seasonings so that your taste buds don’t get overwhelmed.
