Ingredients


Makes 12 servings

1⁄4  cup unsalted butter

1⁄4  cup pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons canola oil

2/3 cup popcorn kernels

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Free of the artificial colors and flavors that can come with microwave popcorn, this sweet, salty treat is totally addictive. Plus, it’s lower in calories and higher in fiber than most chips.

Directions

1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the maple syrup and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Turn the heat to low and keep the butter mixture warm.

2. Heat the canola oil over medium-high heat in a large pot with a fitted lid. Add the popcorn, cover the pot, and cook until there are 2 to 3 seconds between pops, shaking the pot occasionally. Transfer the popcorn to one or two large bowls.

3. Pour the butter mixture over the popcorn and toss to combine. Sprinkle the salt over the popcorn and toss again. Serve.
