Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, honey, salt, and chili powder.
Pour over the honey-coconut oil mixture and stir well to combine.
Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through, or until the mixture is lightly browned and fragrant.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Break into pieces, then serve immediately, or store in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days.

Omit the chili powder if you want to keep this snack super-mild, or double the amount to give it an extra kick.
