Healthy caramel that’s made from coconut cream and maple syrup instead of butter and sugar.

  • Prep Time: 25 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 30 mins
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Scale:


  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp oil of choice (olive oil or sunflower oil are my favorite)

Caramel sauce:


  1. For the caramel sauce: add all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil; once boiling, reduce to a simmer and simmer for 25 minutes.
  2. Once caramel is done simmering, stir consistently for 5 additional minutes, allowing caramel to thicken. Pour caramel in a jar or cup and set aside.
  3. For the popcorn: Heat oil in a large skillet over stovetop and place 3 popcorn kernels in it; place lid over top of skillet.
  4. Once those kernels pop into popcorn, pour additional kernels into skillet, reduce heat to medium and shake skillet over top of burner; popcorn will begin to pop.
  5. Once all popcorn is popped, pour caramel sauce over top and stir everything together with a large spoon or spatula.
  6. Pour caramel popcorn into a a bowl and either A) eat immediately or B) allow time for the caramel to cool and harden. Enjoy!

Recipes Notes:

-1/3 cup of popcorn kernels yields about 8 cups of popcorn, enough for 2 large servings.
