Cinnamon & Toasted Coconut Stovetop Popcorn

Must Try

I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Surprisingly, I’ve been faring pretty well without sugar. My daily green smoothie and the occasional almond butter-stuffed date are keeping my sweet cravings at bay, and more often than not I don’t find myself wanting something sweet after dinner.

That being said, I’m still hungry between meals… and it’s actually been fun to think of new non-sugary snacks.

Cinnamon & Toasted Coconut Stovetop Popcorn

I’ve recently discovered the deliciousness of stovetop popcorn, and Bree’s recipe has become my go-to technique.

I cut down on the amount of coconut oil used to pop the popcorn, and changed up the topping ingredients to include cinnamon, toasted coconut, and almond slices.

Cinnamon & Toasted Coconut Stovetop Popcorn

Crunchy from the almonds, salty, slightly sweet from the cinnamon and coconut, this popcorn not only tastes fantastic but is also the perfect trifecta of carb/protein/fat to satiate your hunger. The low-calorie popcorn makes it a voluminous snack, and the coconut and almonds make it a hunger-busting one.

Isn’t that everything a snack should be?!

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 8 cups freshly popped organic non-GMO popcorn (I recommend this recipe; follow instructions through popping the corn and omit the butter, honey and salt; I also use closer to 2 Tbsp coconut oil for popping rather than 1/4 cup)
  • 2 Tbsp melted unsalted butter, preferably organic
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup toasted almond slices (stir in a dry skillet set over medium-high heat until lightly golden brown)
  • 1 cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes (stir in a dry skillet set over medium-high heat until lightly golden brown)

Instructions

our the melted butter over the freshly popped popcorn; stir to evenly coat. Sprinkle on the salt and cinnamon; stir to evenly coat.

Stir in the toasted almond slices and coconut flakes. Eat immediately.
