Finding snacks while living the clean eating lifestyle can be a challenge because most snacks are over processed and full of chemical junk so it can be hard to eat on the run. Also when going to movies it can also be a challenge to find snacks so we usually eat before hand or just have a movie night at home.
It was because of these movie nights at home I was inspired to make some clean eating kettle corn!
Clean Eating Kettle Corn
(Makes 4 servings)
2 tsp. coconut oil
1/4 cup un-popped popcorn
2 tbsp. coconut sugar
1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (optional)
~ Prep: In a small mixing bowl, blend together your coconut sugar and pumpkin pie spice (if you are using it) so you have it pre-measured and ready to pour. Set aside.
Step 1 – Using a sturdy pot with a lid, melt the coconut oil and then add the popcorn kernels. Cover with lid.
Step 2 – Make sure you have some pot holders handy if you need them. Occasionally shake the pot over the flame to avoid burning.
Step 3 – When the popcorn is popped, keep the lid on, but remove the pot from the heat.
Step 4 – Remove lid and quickly stir in the coconut sugar, stirring with a wooden spoon is best. Stir until the popcorn is well coated. There will still be some white spots on the corn which is fine and normal.
Step 5 – Once mixed, immediately transfer to a cool serving bowl so the sugar doesn’t burn.
Eat and Enjoy!
