Healthy(er) Sweet Popcorn

Okay, so last night I wanted popcorn and I didn't have any butter. A TRAVESTY! I know. So anyway, I got to thinking and had a saweeeeeet idea! I had a feeling it'd turn out, and it DID. Even more so than I'd imagined!

Healthy(er) Sweet Popcorn

1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 1/2 TBS coconut oil
1 1/2 TBS agave

Put 1/4 cup popcorn kernels in brown paper bag, fold down twice, and tape. Microwave for a minute and 35 seconds (I do this everytime I make popcorn. It's the best). Put coconut oil and agave in cup (or something) and microwave until coconut oil is fully melted. Sprinkle the concoction on popcorn, salt, mix. Sprinkle, salt, mix. Sprinkle, salt, mix. Taste, does it need more salt? You be the judge.

YUMMO! Even Clay ate some of it and he is NOT a popcorn guy! Yipee! It has a hint of kettle-corn taste with a hint of a coconutty twist and its all very subtle and not overpowering so it's kinda perfect. I love it when I have an idea and it turns out! (Which happens maybe once a year if that).



i'm so excited to try this! thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!! love you!

Cool, never thought of using agave for popcorn. And I've never done it in the microwave. What a cleaner approach. My friend mixes honey and peanut butter and mixes that in popcorn. Sounds wierd, but TOTALLY YUMMY. So you could try that too.
