Need a sweet/salty fix but don’t want to wreck your diet plan?  This is a GREAT snack!  Popcorn is a great carb and has plenty of fibre! I’m a big proponent of protein with each meal, especially as your last meal of the day (see Protein Lava Brownie!).  But sometimes, sitting down with a big bowl of popcorn is nice too!!!

5 cups air popped popcorn
1/2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted (could also use butter or margarine)
1/2 Tbsp PB2 – powdered peanut butter (could also use regular peanut butter, nutrition will change)
1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 packet Krisda stevia
Pinch salt

If you don’t have an air popcorn popper, use the microwave.  This is what I do!  Take plain kernels (1/4 cup) and place in a brown paper lunch bag.  Fold over the top and microwave for 2-3 minutes or until you hear a second between pops.  In a seperate small bowl, melt coconut oil.  Then add PB2, cocoa, stevia and mix.  Pour over popcorn and toss.  Add a bit of salt over top if necessary.
