University Crunch Time: Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn

If you've seen my last post on the energy balls of brain food, you'll know I'm in crunch time. As there's so many exams coming up, I need some substance to keep me through it. And when I say substance, I mean yummy snacks. Popcorn tends to be my go-to since its so low in calories, high in fibre, and its also scientifically proven that popcorn makes you happy! That sounds like the perfect snack to me. For my birthday I received a popper which makes popping popcorn super easy and pretty fun. This cinnamon sugar popcorn recipe is so easy and will also satisfy all your sweet and savoury cravings. Cinnamon is also a great addition to any meal for your health. It is known to help out your heart, carries anti-oxidants, and also help with brain function (among many other benefits), plus it tastes amazing.

You will need:

Corn kernels (I used 4 tablespoons as that's what my popper requires)

1 teaspoon of Truvia (It's a calorie-less sugar alternative)

1.5 teaspoons of Cinnamon

A pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of melted coconut oil (you can use butter, vegan butter, or anything of your preference)

To start, pop your corn kernels! While they're popping mix together the truvia, cinnamon and salt. Melt your butter or coconut oil. Once it's popped coat your popcorn with all of the ingredients. And you're done! IMG_3622IMG_3626IMG_3631
