These crispy, baked chickpeas make for the ultimate Everything but the Bagel recipe, giving pops of flavor to any dish. Toss these seasoned chickpeas onto a salad, avocado toast, or any snack you want to add a boost of nutrition and a flavorful crunch.



1 15oz can of low-sodium garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1/8 cup canola oil

3 tablespoons Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Seasoning

2 tablespoons panko crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF
  2. Using a paper towel, pat dry the rinsed chickpeas (See Note 1 & 2).
  3. In a small bowl, coat the chickpeas in canola oil. Using a fork or slotted spoon transfer the chickpeas to a ziplock bag, letting the excess oil drain back into the bowl when transferring.
  4. Mix the chickpeas, Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, and panko crumbs in the sealed ziplock bag until well combined.
  5. Spread seasoned chickpeas onto a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy warm or cooled!


NOTE 1: Having a dry chickpea is essential for the oil and seasoning to stick. Use several paper towels and make sure the chickpeas are fully dry before moving on to the next step.

NOTE 2: When rubbing the chickpeas, this action might loosen or remove some of the chickpea skins. Do not discard the skins! When coated in the seasoning and baked, these chickpea skins are so flavorful and crunchy - one of my favorite parts!

NOTE 3: While I love using the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning for this recipe, you can absolutely swap that seasoning for something else. Something like a Montreal Steak Seasoning or a Powdered Ranch Dressing Seasoning would be really tasty!

NOTE 4: Store these Everything But the Bagel Chickpea Toppers in a sealed container in the refrigerator and enjoy within 3-5 days.
