Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour


  • 1 cup chickpeas, dried, soaked overnight
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, raw
  • 3/4 cups almonds, slivered
  • 1/2 cup coconut, shredded
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 cup almond butter, creamy
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks, (use dairy free to make vegan)
  • sprinkle salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Combine chickpeas with 1 tablespoon coconut oil and ½ tablespoon cinnamon and mix well
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add coated chickpeas
  • Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes (don't over cook because we are baking again with granola!)
  • Let the chickpeas cool a bit then begin making granola
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Add roasted chickpeas, pumpkin seeds, silvered almonds, coconut shreds, and coconut flour in large bowl and mix
  • In a small saucepan, add coconut oil and almond butter. Warm over medium heat for 2-3 minutes to combine
  • Remove from heat and stir in cacao powder
  • Immediately pour over the dry ingredients and stir to combine until everything is fully covered
  • Arrange on a large baking sheet and spread into an even layer
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and then turn the pan to bake more (try to not shake the pan so it stays chunky!)
  • Bake about 10 minutes or so more, watching carefully as to not let it burn.
  • Let cool completely, then add in chocolate chunks and sprinkle sea salt on top
