Summer picnics, festivals and graduation parties are just around the bend and it's nice to have snack options that are easy to make in a pinch. Here is one of them. The ingredients are simple, you most likely have them in your home right now. The main ingredient is popcorn, you can find this just about anywhere -- I say try to source it as close to home as possible. Your local Farmer's market is a start. We've all had the super sugary non-natural tasting caramel corn, right? Well, today I'm sharing a new spin on caramel popcorn (adapted from here) with a different flavor and a different kind of yum!

Here's what you'll need:





















  • 1/4 cup organic popcorn kernels
  • vegetable oil
  • a dash of Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • stevia in the raw (we used 5 packets)
  • 1/2 cup of raw almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • large mixing bowl
First, coat the bottom of a medium pot with oil and begin to heat. When oil is hot, immediately add kernels of corn. Shake pot to spread the kernels and once first kernel pops, shake pot continuously (leaving on burner) and  put lid on pot. When the popping slows down considerably, remove from heat.





















Once removed, pour popcorn into large bowl to let cool. Do not add unpopped kernels into bowl. NEXT, add honey and stevia into a pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and almond butter and stir together until completely melted.

LASTLY, pour melted mixture over cooled popcorn and stir until popcorn is coated with caramel mixture. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving and then add salt to taste.

Serve to your loves and enjoy! For more recipes and to learn more about America's Farmers , <<click through. In an upcoming post I'll share more about the farmer behind the popcorn kernels.
