You can only imagine how jazzed Kenya and Chloe were the other day to see these popcorn balls in their school lunch. As we get closer to Halloween I've been trying to make the kids a few of our most loved fall recipes and these also seemed like totally the right call for Rewind Wednesday -- the day I share with you one of our family fave recipes from the weelicious archives. If you get a chance to make these let me know how it goes in the comments below. I always love to hear from you!
Whenever I want to make an inexpensive, healthy snack, popcorn almost always comes to mind. Kenya and I make popcorn together at least once a week, but last week I decided to change things up a bit for snack time and turn this simple treat into something even more fun and special.
I loved eating popcorn balls when I was growing up, but most recipes for them are loaded with sugar and thus not a great choice for kids. These weelicious popcorn balls are made with high protein nut butter and brown rice syrup, so they're still plenty sweet like the old fashioned recipe, but much more nutritious and delicious in my opinion.
