I wanted to make a sweet popcorn that was delicious but not loaded with sugar, so I came up with this recipe. It's one of my kids' favorites! Olive oil works if you don't have coconut oil. If you accidentally add to much salt, add a little more honey. If it's too sweet, add a little more salt. Start with a little cinnamon and gradually add more until it is the flavor you desire.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat coconut oil in a large pot over high heat. Drop 3 popcorn kernels into the hot oil and place a lid on the pot; cook until 1 kernel has popped. Remove the lid and pour in the remaining popcorn. Return the lid to the pot and cook popcorn, shaking pot back and forth over burner, until there are 1 to 2 seconds between pops, about 5 minutes.

  • Quickly transfer popcorn to a large bowl; evenly drizzle honey over popcorn. Add salt and cinnamon; toss popcorn with your hands to coat evenly.

There is an error my recipe. It does not take 5 minutes for the rest of the popcorn to pop once it is added to the pot. It only takes a minute or so. 5 minutes would severely burn the popcorn. Also make sure you do not stop shaking the pot back and forth once the rest of the popcorn is added. Even stopping for 5 seconds is enough to burn the popcorn on the bottom. Read More

I make this without the oil in the microwave. About 3 tablespoons plain popcorn for about 1 1/2 minute makes a medium bowl. I just use the cheap paper sandwich bags you can get at the dollar store. I just kind of drizzle honey over it add the cinnamon shake it up and it is delicious and nutritious Read More

Simple and delicious. Thanks for the great idea. I find that popcorn turns out more tender if you put the kernels in along with the oil and heat them together. Read More

OMGOSH - This is Soooooo Goooood!!! I usually just use Avacado Oil from Trader Joes but I was out so I looked for a recipe using Coconut Oil and by chance found this one - I have never made a Sweet Popped Corn - It was AMAZING - My daughter warmed up some vegan butter and there was the salt!!! I will definitely make it again... Read More

This is amazing. Quick easy and delicious it reminds me of kettle corn but better! I warmed my honey so that it coated better. I definitely ended up with far too much popcorn. Will cut the portions next time. Read More
