Easy Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)

I love this quick and yummy popcorn!

This cinnamon popcorn is lightly sweetened and super easy to make. Another bonus, the ingredients are pretty healthy so I can enjoy this yummy popcorn as a guilt-free treat or snack. Score!

Did I mention yet that this popcorn only takes a few minutes to make? It really is a wonderful option for a fast, healthy snack or treat.

First, you want to get the popcorn popped. I have a Presto air popper that I use whenever I make larger batches of popcorn like this. But you can use whatever method you want! You can even pop popcorn in the microwave with a bowl and plate.

When I pour about a 1/2 cup of kernels into my air popper, I end up with about 13 cups of popped corn, so that is what I’ve based the recipe on. Of course, you can adjust the recipe to the amounts that work best for you.

For that light cinnamon flavor, you start with a few tablespoons of virgin coconut oil. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave or on the stove top, then whisk in the pure maple syrup and cinnamon.

Pour the cinnamon mixture over the popcorn, sprinkle with salt, and stir until coated. Done! So easy. Eat it up. No guilt.

These amounts may vary depending on the specific ingredients you use and if you follow the recipe, but 1 cup of cinnamon popcorn is about 70 calories, 2 g total fat, 12 g total carbs, 1 g protein. (I just entered my ingredients on MyFitnessPal to get the numbers.)

The popcorn isn’t overly sweet, but has a nice light cinnamon flavor. We love it!

(If you’re interested in a sweeter popcorn, but still with clean ingredients, you might want to try this healthier caramel corn recipe too.)

Easy Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)
Total Time: 10mins | Prep Time: 9mins

Ingredients

  • 13 cups popped plain popcorn (from about 1/2 cup unpopped kernels)
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Use your fingers to transfer the popped corn to a large bowl, leaving the unpopped kernels behind.
  2. Add the maple syrup and coconut oil to a glass measuring cup or small bowl and microwave briefly to melt the coconut oil. Whisk or stir with a fork to help the coconut oil melt completely. Then add the cinnamon and whisk or stir to combine.
  3. Pour the syrup mixture over the popcorn and sprinkle on about a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. (You can add more or less salt to taste.) Then stir well until popcorn is coated. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

A 1/2-cup of unpopped kernels yields about 13 cups of popcorn in my air popper.
