Pumpkin Spice Protein Popcorn Recipe

3:44 PM

Fall is finally here, and that means pumpkin spice everywhere! I am definitely a pumpkin spice lover but this year I'm looking for healthier, yet still yummy recipes. A couple years ago I had this crazy idea of wanting to add protein powder to my popcorn. It wasn't until yesterday that I actually did it! Now, that my oldest is in full-time school and his days are long, I started coming up with some great protein recipes for after school snacks and since he is super picky I needed something he would love. Better yet, the whole family would love.

Introducing...Pumpkin Spice Protein Popcorn!

Yes, that's right! Popcorn+Protein+Pumpkin Spice = Heaven in your mouth!
 It only takes a couple minutes to make and you can bag it up to take with you to the movies, stash some in your purse for a quick healthy snack, or enjoy a huge bowl with your family.

We love to make homemade popcorn and we love it even more in the colder months. We use an air-popper. I like it because the kids can use it themselves while I supervise. You can also pop it on the stove with some coconut oil...YUM!

I make about a 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup of popcorn (before it's popped). While that's popping I start melting white chocolate, pumpkin spice, coconut oil, and vanilla protein powder in a double broiler.

Once that is melted I spread the popcorn on a baking sheet and drizzle the chocolate mixture over the popcorn. Then I'll stick it in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes so the chocolate hardens.

Doesn't this look so delicious?!

 Break up the popcorn and ENJOY!
