Maple Coconut Popcorn

I made you some Maple Coconut Popcorn! Popcorn is one of my girls’ favorite snacks.  Ever since we got our air popper, it’s been super easy to make too!  Normally, I just make a maple cinnamon version.  However, the other day, I had some leftover toasted coconut from my toasted coconut vanilla smoothie, so I added that to the mix.  Wow! This Maple Coconut Popcorn came out so delicious!  So good that I had to share with all of you.

My kids claim to hate coconut, but they tore this up.  Not a single bit leftover. I hope you enjoy it too!  If you don’t have an air popper, you can also pop this on the stove.

Gingerbread Roasted Chickpeas

We love gingerbread everything all year long.  How about you?  These Gingerbread Roasted Chickpeas are perfect just about any time.  I love roasted chickpeas because they are an allergy friendly snack.  My daughter is allergic to tree nuts and sesame seeds, so she loves to snack on roasted chickpeas.  This would make the perfect party snack too.
