Healthy peanut butter/molasses/iron-rich popcorn.

First off, I cannot take credit for this recipe. I got this from a cookbook I bought, attending a “10 Steps to Better Health” class hosted by our Chiropractor and his wife. Both super educational, and have been in the health world for decades. This popcorn is a healthy/iron-rich way to enjoy “caramel popcorn” but I don’t resemble this with regular caramel popcorn, this treat has its own delicious flavor and taste. I think you’ll love it! If you at all like molasses, even just a little bit you have to try this you’ll be surprised at how tasty it is!


4-5 quarts popped popcorn

1 1/2 cup blackstrap molasses

1 1/2 cup peanut butter (natural creamy if my preference, or regular Jiff is fine too)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

3 TBSP butter

HOW TO: Pop the popcorn, set aside in a LARGE bowl. In a medium saucepan melt butter, molasses and peanut butter. Heat until only combined and smooth. Then add the vanilla, stir. Pour over the popcorn and toss together. Place popcorn evenly into 2 baking sheets, bake at 180 for 1 1/2-2 hours, stirring once. Cool and store in a glass container. ENJOY!

I had a little 4 year old assistant. 🙂 He needed to test the popcorn.

Lover of life, my husband Chad, and our three kids. I love cooking and baking low-sugar, but still delicious, foods for my Chad who’s a diabetic. We leave room for occasional indulgent foods too! Constantly on the hunt for natural, alternative ways to incorporate to stay healthy. Saved by grace. Lastly adventure and spontaneity are everything...oh, and coffee too.
