Honey and cinnamon popcorn

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cinnamon

 

  1. Heat the coconut oil over a medium-low heat in a pan (make sure you have a lid) with a few kernels.
  2. When the kernels begin to sizzle, add the rest of the kernels and toss to coat them with oil. Cover with lid and wait for them to pop. Remember to shake the pan so that the popcorn moves around and doesn’t burn.
  3. Once all the corn has popped, remove from the heat and sprinkle the rest of the ingredients over while it’s still hot. Shake well in the pan to cover all popcorn — the perfect movie night or pre-workout sweet snack!
