Popcorn with Cinnamon, Honey and Parmesan

Think sopapillas meet popcorn with a cheesy twang! A healthy and delicious alternative to buttered popcorn.


6 cups air popped corn
1 tbsp honey
1/3 tsp. butter (optional)*
1/3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp grana padano or parmesan cheese, freshly grated

1 – Pop corn. If you do not have an air popper, you can place several tablespoons of kernals into the bottom of a brown paper bag. Fold top over and cook at 70-80% power for 2-3 minutes.

2 – Place honey and, if using, butter, into small microwave safe bowl. Warm for about 10 to 20 seconds.

3 – Toss popcorn with honey.

4 – Immediately add cinnamon and cheese. Toss well. Eat immediately.

Note: If calories allow, you can add more butter (or it can also be made with none at all). On days where I need to increase fat, I add up to a tablespoon of butter for a really special treat!
