Coconut Popcorn Balls are definitely going to be a hit on movie night.
Essentially, they’re just hunks of popcorn and cashews held together by a scrumptious creamy mix of nut butter and honey and coated with coconut.
The main thing to think about with this recipe is how to make the popcorn. Microwave is easiest, yes, but there are some very questionable chemicals lurking in the lining of most of those convenient bags and many also come with artificial flavors and colors. So if you’ve got the time, we suggest popping your own.
If you’ve got a popcorn machine, that’s obviously the best, but you can also do it on a stovetop using a tutorial like this one.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Popcorn is a surprisingly low-calorie snack. Combine it with nut butter that’s filled with protein and healthy fats and a little unsweetened coconut, and you’ve got a treat that’s really fun to eat.
