Spoon {eats} : Granola popcorn

When you’re hungry and need a sweet snack, we know it’s easy to go and grab that chocolate bar sitting at the bottom of your cupboard. But popcorn is such a quick, easy and cheap snack to prepare at home – and much healthier too.

By blitzing the granola into a sweet, spicy powder it coats the popcorn, ensuring that you get an equal hit of both granola and popcorn with every mouthful.

We recommend making a big batch for when you've got friends over or divide into singular snack portions to take with you to work or pop into your kids lunch box.

The possibilities are endless with this recipe, try adding different spices, freshly grated zest or using our Apple + Peanut or Dark Chocolate granolas instead.

 

Ingredients:

(Serves 2 good portions)

  • 50g popcorn kernels
  • 1-2 tablespoons of maple syrup/honey (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 50g Spoon Cinnamon + Pecan granola
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon (optional)

 

Method:

  • Firstly, pulse the granola in a food blender until it reaches a smooth powder. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil for 20-30 seconds over a medium heat in a large lidded saucepan. Add the kernels, cover with a lid and cook for a few minutes, until it has all popped, giving it a few shakes in between.
  • Tip the popcorn into a bowl. While it is still hot, drizzle over the syrup of choice, then sprinkle over the granola dust, cinnamon and mix well. Enjoy!
