Almond and Peanut Butter Caramel Popcorn | A perfect healthy snack alternative, very kid-friendly and made without any refined sugar or dairy - so completely vegan!

I was invited to see Whiplash at an outdoor cinema the other night, and while the inviter was in charge of a picnic feast, I as the invitee naturally took it upon myself to provide the sweet treat snack.

I’m still to find a more perfect movie snack than popcorn.

Sure, chocolate and the likes are all fun, but popcorn is still king. I’ll usually go for the salty kind, but this new sweet version has well and truly rocked my world. Sweetened simply with some maple syrup and with the addictive peanut butter caramel, this popcorn has made it’s way into my permanent repertoire of movie treats.

This caramel popcorn also keeps well.

I store mine in a airtight jar at room temperature and it keeps for a couple weeks, so that even if I don’t finish the whole batch when it’s first made it still won’t go to waste. Plus, this means you’ll have delicious almond and peanut butter caramel popcorn on demand – which is everyone’s dream, right?
