Gluten-Free-Cashew-Butter- Pecan-Popcorn

Is Popcorn Gluten Free? Yes it is and it can be SO much more fun than just a bag popped in the microwave.

You know that feeling when you want something sweet after dinner? O yes, this is one of my most favorite gluten-free desserts.

Do you get that feeling in the middle of the day when you’re yearning for a fun snack?

Yea. I get those feelings, too.

All the time.

Cashew-Butter- Pecan-Popcorn-Snack

Well, those feelings are what sparked my thinking for creating this yummy popcorn recipe.

I’ve been receiving a bunch of requests for fun snacks and kid-friendly treats that aren’t filled with sugar.

Cashew-Butter- Pecan-Popcorn-Gluten-Free

So, I started playing around in my kitchen and had a fun little time tossing together homemade popcorn and a lot of healthy and nutritious ingredients.

Instead of canola oil, I used organic coconut oil to make this corn on the stove top, then I tossed it together with sea salt, cashew butter and raw pecans.

So easy … yet so tasty.

I know you’re going to love it.

Now, put on your cozy slippers, pop in your favorite movie and pop yourself some of this organic popcorn for a night of fun and guilt-free gluten-free goodness.

Cashew Butter n’ Pecan Popcorn
Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 8
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Sugar-Free, Vegetarian & Vegan
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin organic coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup organic corn kernels
  • 2 Tbsp. cashew butter
  • ¼ cup raw pecans
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, combine coconut oil and corn kernels. Cover and cook over medium-high heat. Once you hear the corn start to pop, shake the pan back and forth slowly so you move the kernels around.
  2. Remove from heat once the corn stops popping; set aside covered for 1 minute in case there are any corn kernels that still need to pop. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; add remaining ingredients; gently toss to combine.
  3. Serve.

Oh my goodness Amie! This is SO delicious. I was a bit sceptical at first on how well it would work out, but I was in the mood for something different and had everything on hand. Even the kids loved it and gave it two thumbs up! Thanks for all you do.

This sounds amazing. A far cry from the microwave popcorn that is riddled with toxins.

I am a huge fan of all things Bobs Red Mill! Not sure if this is the right place to be commenting for a chance to win the Bobs Red Mill flour? By the way I also love, love, love this website! Here’s to clean eating!


Mary Smith October 27, 2013 at 10:22 am

So, again I learn another use for coconut oil! :)


Amy S October 27, 2013 at 10:47 am

I have never tried adding nut butters to popcorn. Does the cashew butter melt and coat all the kernels or does it only cover a few?


Kim L October 27, 2013 at 12:03 pm
