What’s the problem with how traditional caramel corn is made? The primary ingredients are usually corn syrup and refined white sugar (not at all beneficial to our health or mood). Also, you often have to fight to keep the caramel corn on the baking sheets as you stir it during baking. All these problems have been solved with this new recipe. Natural sweeteners replace the corn syrup and white sugar and the mixture is baked in a casserole dish. Easy and yummy! I’m also always amazed by how large a batch is made with such a small amount of ingredients.

3 Tbsp. coconut oil/butter
1/3 cup honey and/or maple syrup Read More »

fiber + healthy and happy digestion
I just love fiber, don’t you?
Abusing my body throughout my teenage and early adult years left me with a very broken digestive system.
