Peanut Caramel Popcorn

Aug 24, 2010Recipes, Snacks

The use of peanut oil makes this a healthier alternative to the caramel popcorn we all love. Honey, agave, and peanut butter make this a yummy snack that you can feel good about.


Serves 2

2  tablespoons peanut oil
1/4  cup popcorn kernels
1/3  cup wildflower honey
1/3  cup agave syrup
1/2  cup peanut butter, smooth
1/2  cup peanuts, toasted, chopped
1  tsp sea salt, fine


  1. Heat a heavy bottomed pot with the peanut oil. Add the popcorn kernels and the salt and toss in the oil. Cover partially.
  2. When the popcorn starts popping, cover completely and shake the pan until popcorn slows down popping. Take the pan off the heat.
  3. Heat the honey and the agave syrup in a pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add the peanut butter and whisk very well until combined.
  4. Place the popcorn into a bowl and drizzle the peanut caramel over it. Toss well and
    sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
