When it comes to those afternoon sweet cravings, this high fibre snack certainly helps. It is quick and easy to make.
You will need a brown paper bag.
50 g popcorn kernels
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon powder
If you don't have a microwave, don't let that stop you. Put a small amount of oil to coat the bottom of the biggest saucepan you have with a glass lid. Set it on a medium heat and put in a single layer of kernels before returning the lid. As soon as you see it beginning to pop, continuously shake the pan gently across the hob to ensure the kernels don't burn. After a minute or so, once the popping has slowed down significantly, remove from the heat. Allow it to cool briefly, then drizzle on the honey and cinnamon. Transfer to a bowl and tuck in.

2 Tbsp. peanut butter
