Chocolate Coconut Oil Protein Popcorn

I love popcorn and like to try different toppings on it.

This version is a play on salty and sweet, with full-on chocolate flavor and the coconut oil helps everything stick to the kernels.

Chocolate Coconut Oil Protein Popcorn

2 Tbsp Popcorn Kernels

1 Brown Paper Bag

1 to 2 tablespoons coconut oil (or coconut oil cooking spray, or butter, margarine)

1 to 2 tablespoons chocolate protein powder or cocoa powder (if using cocoa powder, you may want to add a pinch of stevia or sugar to reduce the bitterness)

stevia or sweetener, optional to taste

1 to 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast for “cheezy” popcorn, optional to taste

Place kernels in the brown paper bag and cook for 90 Seconds in the Microwave, or until popping sounds become less frequent. Transfer popcorn to a bowl, coat with oil or cooking spray, sprinkle on the toppings, stir to coat and serve.

Coconut Oil Spray from This Post
 Don’t be shy on spraying it because otherwise your toppings won’t adhere well.

Or,  melt Coconut Oil over the Warm Popcorn.  Don’t Have or Like Coconut Oil?  Then use another oil like flax, hemp, olive, grapeseed, or another that you like.  You have to use some sort of oil, or even vegan “butter” (margarine, Earth Balance, etc) or the toppings won’t stick.  Don’t Fear the Healthy Fats!

Then Add/Sprinkle On:
1/2 to 1 scoop of Protein Powder (15-20 grams of protein)
+
3 Tbsp Nooch (9 grams of protein) = Approximately 25-30 grams of protein right there!
And the 2 tbsp of popcorn has about 5 grams of protein in it.

So you’re at 30+ grams protein in this bowl of popcorn!!!

Other Add On’s
Maca (1 gram protein per teaspoon of maca). And Check This Post for the Health Benefits of Maca and Maca FAQ’s
Cinnamon
Stevia, Sugar, or other sweetener to taste or omit
I also add NuNaturals Cocoa Bean Extract Liquid Stevia Drops to the Popcorn Mix from This Post

Of Course, Chocolate Chips are Great, Too!

As I mentioned, I am trying to be mindful and increase my protein slightly but nothing crazy, now that I’m Training for Fitness Competitions

And this Chocolate Coconut Oil Protein Popcorn is Perfect for Me!
Yum I can’t wait to make it again!
