.....because, why not make a healthy snack at home that tastes delicious?
I find having corn kernels at hand is way easier than having to buy the already popped corn - which isn't fresh anyhow, and that's half the experience lost, right?
A bowl of still warm, lovely, fragrant popcorn - score!
It was when I was asking my friends for advise to flavours for popcorn that my old colleague, and friend - Maura, told me to simply fry the corn kernels in coconut oil, and give them a light dusting of cinnamon afterwards. A total treat!
Coconut & Cinnamon Popcorn
1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 tbsp coconut oil
Cinnamon, for dusting
- In a medium casserole, melt the coconut oil on high heat, and add the corn kernels. Place a lid on top, and shake every few seconds, to make sure the corn doesn't burn and gets heated up evenly. Continue until it is finished popping, and then, sprinkle with cinnamon, place the lid back on and give it a good shake before transferring it to a bowl.
Serve simply on its own, or with a good movie and one of your besties *smiles*
Recipe by yours truly, and Maura! (Thanks darling x)
