Almond Joy Popcorn

One of our favorite snacks is air popped popcorn. We found an air popper a few years ago at the thrift shop, and not only is it still fun to watch, but it’s much better for you then microwaved prepackaged popcorn.

Some times to spice things up we will add stuff in, this almond-joy popcorn is my new go to, and just lightly coats the popcorn giving it a sweet chocolate/coconut taste. You can up the amount of toppings for a much more coated snack.

Almond Joy Popcorn
-5-6 cups of air popped popcorn
-1/4 cup of silvered almonds
-1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
-1 tablespoon coconut oil
-1 tablespoon coconut sugar
-1/2 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder

1. In microwave safe bowl melt coconut oil, then mix in sugar and cocoa powder.
2. Once those are all mixed add in coconut flakes and almonds.
3. In a large plastic container with lid add popcorn and toppings, seal lid and shake vigorously.
enjoy!

    Tiffany, our grocery shop Martins has two aisles that I refer to as “the healthy food aisles” although its just where they keep stuff like the fake meats, cheese, organics, gluten free etc. I found the sugar in the baking section.
