Almond Maple Popcorn Snack

Does popcorn ever get boring? Not for my kids. They could eat popcorn every night I think and not get bored by it.  Here's a way to mix it up though if there's a need.

  • 1/3 cup *popcorn Kernels
  • 2 TBL Butter
  • 1 TBL Maple syrup
  • 3 TBL Almond Butter
  • Chopped almond pieces (optional)

We pop our popcorn in the microwave with a brown paper lunch bag for 2 minutes.  Then on the stovetop, melt remaining ingredients together.  Pour sauce over popcorn.  Top with extra almond Pieces.  This sauce never really set's up. It's kind of a gooey, messy thing to eat, but still delicious!

Popcorn is a great snack! It's high in fiber and low in calories.

This looks like a great Thanksgiving dessert for the kiddos. I'm totally making this. Did you use pure maple syrup?

Hi Amy, Thanks for positing your almond butter & maple popcorn recipe! Glad to hear that your kids could eat popcorn every night! So could I! That is why we have decided to jump into the food industry and create a line of microwave popcorn flavors that are kid friendly, foodie friendly, and appeal to the greenies as well. Our product will be 100% pure of chemicals, additives, and the other "stuff" commonly found in microwave popcorn products. We will also be replacing the standard bag with an all natural bag. I thought you might be interested in following our quest in launching an organic/all natural microwave popcorn line. I am sure that you and your family would love to test out the recipes that we will be positing as well- using the best fresh and all natural ingredients out there! Happy popping, and wishing you and your family a healthy 2011! Kristy

Just enjoyed this snack with my 3 year old. We loved it- she really loved the gooey mess and licking her fingers. Thanks!
