Bikini Girl Recipe: Peanut Butter Popcorn

Posted by Bikini Owner

 
I make snacks. To lure them in. I’ve been told I’ll even get a little sparkle in my eye. Slightly mischievous, even. It happens when I get to prove that eating healthier doesn’t automatically mean eating only vegetables and missing out on life. It means eating good tasting stuff. That you like. And it just happens to be better for you.
 
This little “prove it” recipe of mine has been in heavy rotation. Because 1) it’s peanut butter and 2) it”s popcorn. And if I needed a third reason, it’s a recipe that could easily incorporate chocolate.Done. And yes, it’s all real food. So simple. So good. And not a person out there that wouldn’t be at least curious to try it [in the context of being healthy or otherwise].

Peanut Butter Popcorn

Recipe adapted from With Style & Grace 
Makes approximately 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 organic popcorn kernels [important to get organic here- if not, it’s likely GMO corn)
  • 2 TB unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 TB organic peanut butter
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Optional additions: raisins, chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or slivered nuts

Directions:

  1. Prepare popcorn as normal in an air popper, or my favorite method, the whirly pop. Or, if you don’t own either of those tools (why not?), you can do it the old fashioned way: heat 1 TB coconut oil in a large soup pot with a lid. 
  2. As the oil heats up, add kernels and cover with a lid. 
  3. Wait for popping to start, then gently shake the pot until the popping increases, the slows down. 
  4. Pour popcorn into a large bowl when done. Add a bit more coconut oil to the pot to melt. Drizzle over the popcorn.
  5. In a seperate saucepan, add peanut butter and melt over low heat.  
  6. Add the warmed peanut butter over the top. 
  7. Sprinkle the popcorn generously with sea salt and toss to combine with a spoon (note: not your hands- it will burn you. I may be speaking from experience.)
