Coconut Maple Sugar Cinnamon Popcorn

 

Hello, my name is Sarah.
I am a popcorn addict.
Yes, that is me. I freely admit it.
I don’t eat a lot of sweets. The occasional ‘nice cream’ or Cashew milk ice cream.
BUT I love a few bites of sweet popcorn in a bowl.
One might say this is just a hardwired habit by now.
They would probably be right because I am constantly whipping up different varieties.
BUT this is my first time to wing it! Go off recipe.
And it turned out pretty darn fine.
So grab a handful and put it in a bowl to snack on
or just have nibble here or there like me…or mix it up with regular stove popped popcorn for a nice semi-healthy treat bowl.
Because it is a really nice way to end the night.
And that makes me super happy.
The Essentials:
8 cups stove popped popcorn
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup maple syrup
¼ cup brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
½ vanilla
½ baking soda
How to:
Stove pop your popcorn. Add a small amount of olive oil to a large saucepan. Add enough popcorn to cover the bottom of the large saucepan. Cover with lid. Turn to medium heat. When you start to hear popping watch the pan closely! When the popping starts to diminish turn off stove. Pour your popped corn into a large bowl.Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Pre-heat oven to 250.In a small saucepan, add the coconut oil, maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon. Turn burner on low and melt all ingredients. When the mixture starts to boil, boil and stir constantly for 2 – 3 minutes, until it starts to ‘thicken’ slightly. Turn burner off – remove from stove (if it’s electric). And add in both vanilla and baking soda. Mixture will bubble! Stir until well mixed.Pour over popcorn. Mix well.Pour popcorn onto prepared baking sheet.Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Stirring after 15 minutes.Cool and Enjoy!
Xo, Sarah
