Healthy Caramel Corn

8 cups of popped popcorn (make sure to remove un-popped kernels)

1/2 cup butter, coconut oil, vegan butter, canola oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 sucanat, evaporated cane juice, or brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 300.

Heat butter, syrup, sugar and vanilla over low heat in a large dutch oven or stock pot.  Add popcorn into melted mixture and stir until all pieces are covered.  

Spread popcorn onto GREASED cookie sheet (preferably one with a rim) and bake at 300 for 10 minutes.  Keep an eye on it, as it can burn quickly.

Remove and let cool for another 10 minutes.

Devour it!!!  


  1. Hi Amy,
    Love your blog. Lots of great ideas. I was thinking of you this weekend in Santa Barbara because we tried a cool restaurant, Backyard Bowls. Reminded me of some stuff on your blog :) They use homemade hemp and cashew milk. Do you make yours? Very fascinating stuff!
