This recipe is so tasty… You’ll be hard pushed to not eat the whole batch in one go like I did. Guilty, yes.
Nom Organics make a selection of Vegan Popcorn which is not only delicious it’s totally guilt free. When they contacted me about creating a recipe using their Salted Maple and Cinnamon Maple varieties I couldn’t wait to get baking!
So – to create these delicious Vegan, gluten free beauties you will need –
2 Bags of Salted Maple Popcorn
2 teaspoons of Cinnamon
1 table spoon of Agave Nectre
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
large handful of hazlenuts
1 cup Ground Almonds
Pop the dates, agave, vanilla, almonds, cinnamon and hazelnuts into a high speed blender with 1 cup of boiling water and blend until sticky.
Place the popcorn into a bowl and pour the mixture over he top and mix until covered.
Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees and on a baking tray lay parchment and grease using coconut oil. Layer the mixture around an inch thick and bake for 30 mins.
While this is happening take a table spoon of Cacao Powder, agave and cinnamon and blend to make a chocolate drizzle.
Once baked remove from the oven and cool, drizzle the cacao mixture ontop and then score with a knife to make flapjacks.
Place this in the fridge for roughly 2 hours until solid.
The same method goes for the Cinnamon Maple – However I used –
10 Dried Apricots
1 tablespoon of Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon of Meridian Peanut Butter
1 cup of Oats
handful of Hazlenuts
Repeat the above – Voila delicious guilt free yummies.
Thanks to Nom Foods for sending me the popcorn.. You have to try it’s so good!!
