Honey & Cinnamon Popcorn

Last night I saw this recipe on Instagram, and I couldn't stop thinking about it! I always really struggle to find snack recipes that I think I will like, and also that I can be bothered making! Too much effort = not worth it for me! Last Christmas I gifted myself a popcorn maker and it's always a good option, except the usual flavour is melted butter....not exactly a healthy option. This recipe shared by Sugar Free Kiwi is perfect for me. I'm not a huge fan of replacing everything with coconut oil, but again, I just like the sound of this and thought it's a good option for kindy lunchbox too! My son loved it so it's a winner in our house!

Sugar Free Kiwi is a really great page to follow on Instagram as she posts a lot of yummy recipes which are easy to do. To be fair, this is the first one I've actually made, but I like to follow along for inspiration. I've also been eyeing up a recipe for Raw Peppermint Slice too!

Here's the recipe, full credit to Sugar Free Kiwi- make sure you check out her page!

Honey & Cinnamon Popcorn


5 Tablespoons Popcorn Kernels, air popped
3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Honey 
1 Teaspoon ground Cinnamon


Melt the Coconut Oil, Honey and Cinnamon on a low heat in a pot large enough for all the popcorn. 
Once the oil and honey mixture is melted and combined, add the popcorn and stir gently until all the popcorn is coated and barely any left at the bottom of the pot.
Spread onto a baking tray and bake at 150°C for 15 minutes or until brown/golden. 

Allow to cool completely before storing, and tastes better/crisper once cooled too!
