I love popcorn for its simplicity. So easy to pop it and such an inexpensive snack! My kiddos love it in their lunchboxes too.
We already make Sweet and Salty Puffed Corn for a change but this one is a new addition.
Fair warning. If you start, you’ll probably not be able to walk away! I made a batch of this for my dad for Father’s Day …. and then had to promptly make another batch after it sat on the bench and my 4 little people discovered it!!
- 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
- 35g tasteless coconut oil
- 25g maple syrup
- 25g sunflower seed butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 tsp mixed spice
Air pop the kernels. Place in a large baking tray.
Preheat the oven to 215C.
Mix the remaining ingredients together in a saucepan and heat gently, stirring until the mix is completely melted and smooth (speed 2, 100C, approx 90 secs)
Pour mix over the popcorn and mix well to coat.
Optional: if you like sweet and salty together, you can sprinkle over 1/2 tsp of pink salt flakes here.
Place into oven. For about 4 minutes.
Remove from oven and stir again, then return to oven for a further 4-5 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before storing in an air tight container.
