Sweet and Salty Healthy Popcorn |

Oh Wow, Do I Have A Treat For You!


Alright, last night I had a craving!  I wanted something sweet and slightly salty!  My first instinct was to make my 3 minute, 3 ingredient salted caramel.  So I did just that, made a caramel in 3 minutes.

Now, what to put that smooth and rich caramel on.  Sure, ice cream might be the first thought, but I was looking for some crunch!

So I pulled my popcorn popper out and whipped up a batch of GMO Free Popcorn and danced with the idea of making a kettle corn creation but a healthy popcorn recipe that everyone could enjoy!

Goo & Sweet & Salty…Oh My!


Sure, one might think that this is a caramel corn, but it is far from it.  I used very little caramel…just enough to give it a slight sweetness and the salt gave it that, oh you know…salty flavor that I was after!

There was enough goo from the caramel to allow the popcorn to stick together slightly. Yay, I used the word goo, but hey this is some good goo!!

What makes this a healthy popcorn recipe?  Glad you asked!

What Makes This A Healthy Popcorn Recipe?


Here is why this popcorn is a healthy alternative to what you find at the market:

  • Made without GMO popcorn (genetical modified organisms)
  • Made without refined salt
  • Made without refined sugar
  • Is naturally sweetened
  • Is made with quality fats
  • Has no artificial flavors or preservatives

Yay, I’d say this is a much better option then anything else on the market out there!  And it will take you only 5 minutes to whip up!  Now that is what I am talking about…delicious and simple!

    Oh Halle – My kids are going to go GA GA over this! Not that it wouldn’t be eaten all at once but just wondering how this holds up for the day? I’m thinking a treat to pack in their lunch. That is … IF there’s any left after I make it. 😉 Thanks!!
