PERFORMANCE RATING: 2/4
Not high in Performance rating but high in wonderful anti-inflammatory cinnamon. Since this popcorn is organic, or if you use popcorn made from sweet corn, you are free of the toxins otherwise found in corn. We like Earth Balance spread as it is made from healthier fats. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that is lower in calories than sugar. It is potent so little is needed to add a bit of sweet flavor. It is also known for its ability to protect your teeth from decay! Substitutes are Stevia or sugar cane.
We JUST had some Kid Kritics taste test this recipe. 100% said, “Yes”, we love it. Your kids can make this themselves. Put some in their camp lunch boxes! This is a slam dunk winner!
