Serves: 2

1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups freshly cooked garbanzo beans)
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
Pinch of kosher or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. Combine the chickpeas, oil and salt in a medium bowl and stir to coat. Reserve the bowl (do not clean). Place the chickpeas on a baking sheet in an even layer and roast for 20 minutes, shake the pan and roast for another 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let chickpeas cool for a moment.

3. Stir together the cinnamon and honey in the reserved bowl then add the roasted chickpeas and toss to coat. Return the chickpeas to the sheet pan and continue roasting until golden brown and crispy, about 8 minutes longer.

4. Cool completely and serve.
