Sweet n’ Salty Popcorn

18 Jan

Ingredients:

1/4 cup popcorn kernels

1 Tbsp syrup (agave or maple)

1 Tbsp nut butter ( used Better n Peanut Butter, which has less calories)

popcorn salt to taste.

Air pop the popcorn. I recommend the presto microwave popcorn popper.  It works great!  Heat the syrup and nut butter in microwave just long enough to make it liquidy, maybe 10-15 seconds.  Pour over the popcorn, adding salt to taste.  Mix with your hands.  Lick your hands off  (just kidding.  kind of.)  The popcorn salt is just extra fine.  I like it.

Entire recipe using Better n Peanut Butter, 200 calories.  Using regular nut butter, 240 calories.  I split it in half and that was plenty for one serving (100-120 calories.)  This was sticky, as you can imagine.  I liked it that way.  It might have been more like kettle corn if you baked it for a bit.  You’ll have to experiment with that on your own.  I know I won’t be waiting that long to eat it!
