Healthy Caramel Corn (vegan)

DSC_0214You won’t believe how close to “real” caramel this sauce tastes.  It is unique because it is made with all natural plant based foods, instead of cream or butter.  All I hear is that I get to eat more of it! This makes a big bowl- whether or not you share is up to you 😉

Be sure to buy non-GMO popcorn kernels. If they are labelled “organic” they will be non-GMO.

Healthy Caramel Corn:

– 1 cup organic (non-GMO) popping corn – this is easily found at health food stores, or in the bulk sections of supermarkets

Use an air popper to pop popcorn.  You could pop it in a pot on the stove, but I don’t know how to do that 🙂

Caramel Sauce:

– 1/2 cup coconut oil

– 2/3 cup coconut sugar

– 2 T maple syrup

– 2/3 cup almond milk

– pinch cinnamon

– pinch himalayan sea salt

1 T of nut butter (optional)

Place a small saucepan over medium heat.  Add coconut oil, coconut sugar and maple syrup. Stir to combine.  Simmer until sugar dissolves.  Whisk in almond milk.  Add cinnamon and sea salt.  Simmer for a few moments.  Remove from heat.  Place in the freezer for a few moments to cool down the sauce.  Stir sauce a few times while it is in the freezer.  If you add the sauce while it is too hot it will cause the kernels to shrivel.  Once sauce is lukewarm, pour over popcorn.  Stir to combine.  Really dig down to the bottom as you stir as the sauce has a tendency to gather there.  Eat 🙂 Whatever is leftover can be store in an airtight container for a few days (this shouldn’t be an issue).

Enjoy ❤ ❤
