Coconut Popped Corn

Health benefit: coconut oil doesn’t form unhealthy free radicals on heating so it’s a safer choice for high temperature cooking
Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 100g popping corn kernels

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil *
  • Sea salt and/or black pepper to flavour
* Available at Holland & Barrett

Method

Step 1
Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan. When it’s at the right temperature (check by adding just two kernels to the pan), cook the corn according to the instructions on the pack.

Step 2
Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and a little more melted coconut oil if wished.

Cococherry Flapjacks

Preheat oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4, grease and line a 30cm x 23cm tray bake tin with baking parchment.
