Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Popcorn is a healthy, whole-grain snack that is full of fiber. Fiber helps to slow down digestion as well as control blood sugar levels in the body, which can help you stay full and avoid spikes and drops in blood sugar. Opting for whole grains, such as popcorn can decrease inflammation in the body,and lower the risk of heart disease.

Non-GMO Popcorn with Cinnamon and Melted Coconut Oil

  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:10 minutes
  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/3 cup of non-GMO popcorn kernels
Cinnamon, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a 3-quart saucepan on medium high heat. Allow all of the coconut oil to melt.
  2. Put 3 or 4 popcorn kernels into the oil and cover the pan.
  3. When the kernels pop, add the rest of the 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels in an even layer.
  4. Cover, remove from heat and count 30 seconds.
  5. Return the pan to the heat. The popcorn should begin popping soon, and all at once. Once the popping starts in earnest, gently shake the pan by moving it back and forth over the burner.
  6. Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat, remove the lid, and dump the popcorn immediately into a wide bowl.
  7. Shake cinnamon over the popcorn.

    Hi, I’m allergic to cinnamon. Is there a substitute I can use? Can I use Bragg Nutritional Yeast Seasoning, there’s no sugar. Or Himalayan salt?
