We LOVE SunButter at our house! Although my oldest can have peanut butter, we rarely eat it since my youngest has a peanut allergy. I’m so grateful to have a peanut butter substitute that tastes, smells and looks similar. SunButter is that, and so much more, for us!
You know what I love almost as much as I love SunButter?? Popcorn! I recently purchased a Hot Air Popcorn Maker and love it! My little men love to watch the kernels turn into white puffy pillows and I love the fact that I can purchase organic, non-GMO kernels and pop my own without the added chemicals and allergens.
Don’t have a popcorn maker? Did you know that you can do the same thing in your microwave with a brown paper bag?? Check out the post by Melissa on Bless This Mess. Now you’ll never need to buy store bought microwave popcorn again.
If you love popcorn and SunButter or if you are nut-free at your house and looking for a fun sweet treat to make, then you’ll love this fun recipe!
This recipe is free of the top 8 allergens: dairy, soy, egg, gluten/wheat, peanut, tree nut, fish, and shellfish.
- ½ Cup Popcorn Kernels
- ½ Cup Brown Sugar
- ½ Cup Light Corn Syrup
- ½ tsp. Vanilla
- ½ Cup SunButter
- Preheat oven to 250° F.
- Using a Hot Air Popcorn Maker, pop all of the kernels into a bowl. (Or use the brown bag method shared on Bless This Mess)
- Remove all unpopped kernels. (once covered in a SunButter caramel sauce, they become a serious tooth hazard)
- In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the brown sugar, vanilla, and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat and stir in SunButter.
- Pour over the popcorn and stir until well coated.
- Line a jelly pan with parchment paper and pour the SunButter popcorn into the pan.
- Place pan in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool before eating.
Keep in an airtight container because the popcorn will be sticky.

**Disclaimer: Please note that every child’s sensitivity to their given allergen(s) varies.

You should always check with the manufacturer to confirm that your child can have their product(s). The products that I list are items that I’ve been using for awhile and have proven to be safe for my boys (their allergies are dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish and sesame).**
