Watching a match without snacks or a movie without munchies at home on a quiet weekend is boring. This is the time when we indulge mindlessly into unhealthy snacks. Here is a Healthy Snack Bowl recipe for adults and kids alike.
- 1 tablespoon cold pressed coconut oil
- 1/4 cup corn kernels
- Salt as required
- 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
- 1/4 cup soy milk/coconut milk/almond milk
- 2 to 3 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup/honey
- 1/2 an apple, chopped into cubes
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 8 to10 walnuts
In a sauce pan add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and turn the heat on medium after a 30 to 40 seconds drop 2 to 3 corn kernels and wait for the pop.
Once they pop scoop them out and add all the kernels and stir quickly and cover the lid allowing a gap for the steam to escape of they will be burnt.
Give the sauce pan a shake every few seconds to allow even heat.
Let all the pop corn pop, once the popping slows down and stops turn of the heat and remove the lid, sprinkle a tiny amount of salt and give it all a shake.
In a saucepan combine peanut butter, cocoa powder, milk and maple syrup and stir it on low heat until its saucy and smooth. Turn it off once it starts to bubble.
Now place the popcorn in a bowl, add the raisins, walnuts and apples, drizzle the sauce over and serve.
You can even add pretzels, other nuts and dried fruit that you like into the bowl.
Make sure not to add too much salt in this recipe since peanut butter will have some saltiness to it.
Serve Healthy Snack Bowl during a movie night or pack it in your snack box along with other healthy snacks.
