Print Recipe


  • 1/3 cup xylitol
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup nut or seed butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup nuts (optional) (chopped or whole)
  • 8 cups popped popcorn (I use organic)


  • Heat sweetener and water (if using) in a small pan over medium heat just until it begins to boil.  Quickly add nut or seed butter (you will want to have this pre-measured), vanilla and salt.  Stir continuously over heat until well blended.  Remove from heat, add nuts and stir.  (Hint:  You want this mixture to be pourable.  Too thick and you will have a hard time coating the popcorn.)
  • Immediately pour over popcorn and stir to coat.  The topping will be hot at first, so be careful with your hands!
