  1. Rinse garbanzo beans, also know as chickepeas, thoroughly. Add water and beans to Air Fryer or Instant Pot.
  2. Set Instant Pot on high pressure for 35 minutes, close valve and start.
  3. When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for at least 20 minutes. Then, turn the valve to vent.
  4. Allow chickpeas to cool, then drain. Set aside 2 cups of the cooked garbanzos. (Store the remainder in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 6 months.)
  5. In a bowl, combine the 2 cups of cooked garbanzos with the sugar, cinnamon and honey. Mix well.
  6. Heat the air fryer to 400ºF, add the 2 cups cooked garbanzos and set timer to cook for 12 minutes.
  7. Halfway through, at 6 minutes, open the air fryer, spray beans with cooking spray, and shake.
  8. Close and resume cooking for remaining 6 minutes.
  9. Transfer to bowl and enjoy them on their own or use them as toppings on your favorite ice cream
