  1. Heat the coconut oil into a large pot with a lid over medium-high heat. Add popcorn kernels, stir, and cover. Shake the pan back and forth every 20 seconds to heat the kernels evenly. After 1 - 2 minutes, it should start to pop. When the popping slows, remove from heat.
  2. In a saucepan, place remaining coconut oil and maple syrup. Allow to gently boil for 2 minutes, stirring throughout. Note, don't remove from the heat too soon, as the sugar and oil won’t harden and crisp when added to the popcorn, but also be careful not to over-cook as the sugar can burn.
  3. Then remove the saucepan from the heat, and stir in the vanilla, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. Drizzle the caramel sauce over the popcorn and toss to coat. Spread out the popcorn onto parchment paper to cool for 5 - 10 minutes. Enjoy!


  • Best if enjoyed immediately, otherwise store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 1 day.
