Healthy Homemade Kettle Corn Recipe

My family are serious snackers, meaning we take our snacking seriously. This kettle corn recipe is SOOO good.

I rarely let junk food into the house and am always on the search for great tasting snacks without the ridiculous calories. Because if the snack doesn’t taste good, the kids just won’t eat it.

With September being Childhood Obesity Month, what better time to share a healthier version of a favorite snack! In observance, I’m incorporating Monk Fruit In The Raw into some of my recipes as a way to reduce sugar without reducing taste.

Add in the sugars and immediately cover.

5. Hold the skillet just above the heat and shake it constantly to prevent the sugar and popcorn from burning. You may want to grab a good oven mitt — it can get hot!

6. When the popping noticeably slows down, transfer the popcorn immediately to a large bowl.

7. Sprinkle on 1/4 fine sea salt (do more than that and it can get too salty).

Tips: Because the sugar can burn easily, be sure to not overheat the skillet.

Also, pre-measure the ingredients so you can add them in quickly.

In addition, keep the bowl nearby so you can immediately transfer the popcorn to the bowl; otherwise, you’ll burn your beautiful popcorn!

      I love to make my own popcorn and I had never heard of this recipe so I will try it as a snack for the kids this weekend. I need to buy the Monk Fruit

      1. The Monk Fruit is a terrific way to cut out a lot of the calories from Kettle Corn. When you make it, just be sure to pay close attention to the heat… the sugar does burn quickly if you don’t keep the kernels moving. Have fun making it! My boys loved the treat.
