crunchy peanut butter popcorn

There is something about popcorn that never fails to put a smile on the face of the consumer. The smell of fresh popcorn would thrill anybody.

I absolutely love popcorn; I could eat it every day.
Popcorn may satisfy any palate… one may enjoy it sweet, salty, plain, spicy, chewy, crunchy, and a million other ways.

Popcorn is a low calorie snack and can be incorporated into a healthy diet.

There is one thing that I love more than popcorn and that is peanut butter.

💡 Light bulb! 💡

I’ve combined my two favourite things into one delicious, crunchy snack.

Here is what I did:

I placed my air-popped popcorn into a plastic bag and set aside.
For the peanut butter coating: I added just about a tablespoon of Organic peanut butter (not the commercial kind) to a small bowl and poured a little bit of hot water to the bowl. I stirred the mixture until I achieved a runny consistency. (For a sweeter taste, add a dash of maple syrup to the mixture). I then added the mixture to the bag of popcorn and scrunched the bag a few times to make sure that every kernel was covered.
Once my popcorn had been peanut-butterfied, I laid the popcorn onto a greased baking tray and placed it into a 180’c oven for about 10min to dry up a little. If you like your popcorn sticky… skip the baking part.

The end result was delicious, crunchy, peanut butter popcorn… Booyah!

But wait….

The popcorn party has not ended yet…

Here is a recipe for Protein Popcorn:

Follow the procedure for the coated popcorn above;

For the coating:
Add a scoop of vanilla whey protein to a small bowl and add very little water; Just enough water to create a thick consistency that isn’t too runny. Add a dash of maple syrup or sweetener of your choice. Add a tablespoon of peanut butter to the mixture and stir.

*optional: I’ve added some crushed nuts to my popcorn for a little extra crunch. Feel free to get creative… add some raisins for a peanut butter and jelly taste; or some dark chocolate chips for peanut butter choc-chip cookie popcorn.
