I have recently become obsessed with pop corn as a healthy snack. It is so fun to make and you get really cool Amish blue corn here, which I thought would pop blue but doesn't although it has a lovely sweet flavour to it. I decided to play around trying to make a toffee popcorn without all the butter and refined sugar and created this yummy one, it went down a storm, just be mindful not to let it burn so AS SOON as the corn has popped take it out the pan or it will just burn and not taste good at all.
You will need:
- popping corn
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Add all the ingredients to a big pan and heat up. Cover and allow temperature to rise so the corn pops and the liquid caramelises. As soon as the pop corn has stopped popping tip into a bowl and serve. YUM! If you store this in a tupperwear or tin it will last overnight, but good luck having any leftover to store ;)
