Servings 3 cups


stove top popcorn

  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup organic popcorn kernels

Sticky caramel popcorn ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp hulled tahini
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 cups popped popcorn


stove top popcorn

  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed saucepan (with lid). 
  • Melt coconut oil. Put 3-4 kernels into the oil, when kernels pop the temperature is right. Add the rest of your popcorn (across one even layer). 
  • Cover (with a lid slightly ajar for drier and crispier popcorn) and remove from heat for 30 seconds (this helps to even the temperature so that they pop at the same time). 
  • Return to heat. Once popping slows remove from heat. 
  • Allow to cool. 

Sticky caramel popcorn
