When I was a girl, popcorn was my favorite salty treat.  My sisters and brothers and I would make some for an afternoon snack, and sit around the bowl, and just eat it until it was gone.  As an adult, I experience digestive issues when I eat popcorn, which is very sad.  The good news is that this healthy and easy treat tastes Just Like Popcorn!  It is crunchy, toasty, salty and yum!  I first heard of this concept from Mel of Clothes Makes the Girl – see her recipe here.  Later, a friend of mine made it with ghee, which just gave it more of a buttered popcorn flavor.  Wow!  Its amazing! 🙂  Please don’t try it with finely shredded coconut!  It just isn’t the same…  Measurements are somewhat estimated – it just doesn’t have to be exact.

Enough large flake unsweetened coconut to cover the bottom of the pan
~OR~ 1 -12 oz bag of Bob’s Red Mill Flaked Unsweetened Coconut 
A few Tbs. of melted ghee (clarified butter)  I’m sure you could sub coconut oil here…
Sea Salt

1. Pre-heat oven to 350.

2. Mix ingredients on your sheet tray.

3. Bake until desired toastyness.  It doesn’t take long!  Be sure to watch it. 🙂

 

21 Day Sugar Detox update:  I am on Day 11 and feeling great!  I think this cleanse is helping my husband just as much as it is helping me.  What I miss most is my Plantain Pizza/Wraps.  It will come eventually! 🙂
