Apple Cinnamon Popcorn is a great way to enjoy popcorn as a dessert or snack. Tossed with apple chips, honey, cinnamon and vanilla, you will crave this popcorn seasoning every day!
There has never been a shortage of flavored popcorn, caramel apple popcorn being among the most popular. While fabulous in moderation, I needed an alternative popcorn seasoning to keep me munching responsibly. I came up with a healthier version: Apple Cinnamon Popcorn!
Basically an apple pie popcorn, I took air popped kernels and tossed them with honey, cinnamon and vanilla. You can even use apple pie spice! Depending on what you have around the house, use coconut oil or unsalted butter, to toss with the other flavors and equally distribute.
But what really sets this popcorn seasoning apart are the apple chips. Dehydrated chips of tart and sweet apples account for fruit intake and add loads of flavor!
