Oh, this cinnamon-spiced popcorn recipe is just so so good! Made with cashew butter it is a guilt-free snack you can enjoy. Perfect for sharing with the fam on movie night or even when hosting a get-together!Jump to Recipe
I was inspired by my favorite vegan butter when they introduced their cinnamon spice butter to make this. We enjoy popcorn pretty often at our house. It is the perfect movie night snack while we are all cuddled on the couch under a cozy blanket.
It also helps to satisfy my kid’s constant need for snacks, and bonus that it takes some time to eat! So I get 30 minutes of peace hahaha (mom life hacks are what it is all about!),
Because popcorn is low in calories on its own this snack can be as low or high cal as you like. You can add lots of cinnamon-spiced butter and salt or just a tad. I usually make a bowl for my kiddos with loads of butter and for me and my husband I scale back a little (but honestly not too much because this butter is A-Mazing!
I highly recommend using a popcorn maker for this. If you don’t have one considering buying one. they are inexpensive and make this snack a zero-waste option! No microwave bag to throw out and no harsh nasty chemicals to ingest!
Did you know that microwave popcorn bags are lined with PFCs. This chemical can be broken down into perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a chemical that’s suspected to cause cancer!
Recently, the FDA conducted a review of this PFOA to see what sources may be contributing to this chemical is in our bloodstream. They concluded that microwave popcorn may account for 20% of the average PFOA blood levels in Americans, scary stuff right there (1,2)!
So stick to popcorn makers and try and buy your kernels in bulk! Saving yourself and the environment!
There is no big secret or skill in making this butter recipe. If you can find the culcherd cinnamon spiced butter then use that. Otherwise, regular vegan butter works very well (we tested both ways).
I make the butter recipe right on my popcorn maker. I just add the butter to the lid (the little holder on top of the popcorn maker is actually for melting butter, did you know that?). So I add the butter and the spices and let the heat of the popcorn machine do its a thing. Stir once or twice and you got your liquid gold!
Thanks for reading! If you make this recipe please like and comment, that would mean a lot to me! And tag me with your re-creations so I can share over on Instagram!
Until then, tchau
