  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Open your package of garbanzo beans and pour into a strainer, rinsing with cool water. Shake off excess water and pour onto a towel to dry. Make sure all skins are removed from the beans.
  2. Once dry, place garbanzos in a small mixing bowl with 1 tbsp coconut oil, ground cinnamon, and sugar and gently mix until coated.
  3. Return garbanzos beans to the baking sheet and place in 400 degree Fahrenheit oven to roast for 40 minutes.
  4. Shake baking sheet in a circular motion every 10-15 minutes to ensure even roasting.
  5. Remove from oven when garbanzos are a medium brown color and crispy when tasted. Set tray on cooling rack.
  6. While garbanzos are cooling, melt chocolate chips. Add in 1 tbs coconut oil. Chocolate should be completely melted and drip off of the end of the spoon easily.
  7. Pour chocolate into a small mixing bowl and add garbanzos while they are still warm. Stir and then pour onto a baking pan (I used a loaf pan) with a fresh sheet of parchment paper. Spread evenly on baking sheet with spatula.
  8. Refrigerate for a few hours to solidify the chocolate. Once very firm, remove from refrigerator and either cut or break into pieces. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerate.
