This recipe for vegan, gluten-free Chocolate Almond Butter Popcorn is so easy and makes a perfect healthy movie night dessert! You could even eat it for a snack!
Today I’m introducing you to another fabulous blogger – Emilie from Emilie Eats. I’m a relatively new follower to her blog but I’m SO impressed by the high-quality recipes and photos she manages from a tiny apartment while balancing school, pageants, and other college activities! You guys know I’m not a vegan myself, but that doesn’t mean I’m not obsessed with her recipes – like this Avocado Caprese Pasta Salad, these BBQ Lentil Stuffed Sweet Potatoes or these Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Bars! Do yourself a favor and go check out her blog!
Hey everyone! I’m Emilie, the blogger (and eater) over at Emilie Eats, where I share the healthy, plant-based recipes I enjoy cooking in my tiny college apartment. Thanks so much to Lindsay for letting me guest post on The Lean Green Bean! I met Lindsay through the amazing BGB Community, and I love her dedication to her family and health.
Lindsay wanted me to make something simple for all of you, so I’m bringing you one of my favorite late-night snacks perfect for movie night – chocolate almond butter popcorn!
Chocolate Almond Butter Popcorn
Like most other college students, I enjoy a good Netflix binge-watching session after a long week of school and work. We just finished all 7 seasons of Breaking Bad in 1 month – the obsession is real!
Of course, you have to enjoy some delicious snacks while you’re watching your favorite movies and shows. What goes better with movie night than fresh-popped popcorn? This recipe is a twist on classic popcorn that will definitely satisfy your after-dinner sweet tooth.
You’ll need to air pop some popcorn, and I have good news: all you need are popcorn kernels and a brown paper lunch bag! Simply put the kernels in the bag and microwave them until most of the kernels are popped.
Next, prepare your almond butter drizzle! You can also use peanut butter (Reese’s popcorn, anyone?) or any other nut or seed butter. Pour your almond butter mixture over the popcorn and let it cool for a couple minutes. The mixture will harden and form irresistible popcorn clusters!
Of course, don’t forget the chocolate! All you need are 3 simple ingredients to make the chocolate sauce. Drizzle some on top of your bowl of popcorn, and voilà! Movie night snacking just got a whole lot tastier. Enjoy!
Are you guys drooling yet??
I can’t wait to try this recipe myself because I actually tried to make something similar about a year ago and it was a miserable fail! Huge thanks to Emilie for stopping by today. Be sure to go check out her blog and follow her on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest.
