Yesterday I wanted to see how raw popcorn kernels pop in a frying pan. Let me tell you, this is super fun to watch :) But as I am not a big popcorn eater, I had to find another way to use the freshly made popcorn. So why not create a new granola recipe? The result reminds me a bit of the sweet caramel popcorn we used to buy at our local supermarket. If you like to mix your granola up a bit, this recipe is for you. AND popcorn is a whole grain food providing lots of fiber to your diet. On top of that, it is low in fat and calories and high in protein. So let's start popping!
Add a popping twist to your granola
- Pop the corn kernels: Add some olive oil to a frying pan and add a few kernels. Once they start popping, the oil is hot enough to add the remaining ones.
- Mix oats, popcorn, coconut oil, coconut syrup, cinnamon, sunflower seeds and salt in a bowl and mix well
- Put granola on a baking sheet and bake for about 15-20min at 180C
- 100g rolled oats
- 50g raw popcorn kernels
- 3 Tbsp coconut oil
- 3 Tbsp coconut syrup
- 1 Tsp cinnamon
- Handful sunflower seeds
- pinch of sea salt
