Cinnamon & Sugar Roasted Chick Peas 
1 can chick peas- drain, rinse, and pick out any loose shells
2 tsp coconut oil- melted
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 tbs honey (or maple, agave, etc.)

Preheat over to 375*
Dry the drained and rinsed chick peas on a paper towel making sure to get any loose shells.
I a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, cinnamon, and sugar.
Throw in dried chick peas and toss to coat.
Spread chick peas on a lined baking sheet making sure they're spread out.
Bake for 35-45mins, shaking pan every now and then to turn chick peas.
When crunchy and roasty, remove from oven.
In a clean bowl, toss roasted chick peas with honey and then allow to cool and dry.
Store them in an airtight container if you don't gobble them up right away!
