Thanks to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn for sponsoring today’s recipe!
My family loves popcorn! When my kids were little we’d pop corn and play games every Sunday evening. Those are some of my favorite memories. Just the smell of corn popping brings back happy feelings.
Popcorn can be a part of your clean eating lifestyle too! It is a healthy whole grain food that is low in fat and calories and adds fiber to your diet. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn has made healthy snacking even easier with their Healthy Pop line. It’s 100% whole grain, gluten free, and uses non-GMO pop corn, and comes in a variety of flavors.
I especially like to eat popcorn with other healthy ingredients added to enhance the nutrition. My favorite add-ins are nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. I also like to play around with spices. This recipe includes nuts and seeds roasted in a combination of sweet and savory spices. The cranberries add a pop of sweetness.
I used the JOLLY TIME Healthy Pop Crispy White flavor, but it would be yummy with the Butter or Kettle Corn flavors as well.
