Toasted Brown Sugar Coconut Popcorn

Toasted Brown Sugar Coconut Popcorn

I have been dreaming about making this Toasted Coconut Popcorn from the first moment I saw it on Shutterbean. (Head over and check out Tracey’s blog, she is a bit of a genius and has plenty of vegan friendly stuff and beautiful photos to boot). Not only am I obsessed with popcorn in pretty much everyway, this adds my another love of mine – coconut. I added a touch of brown sugar to sweeten it up and also ended up drizzling a bit of chocolate over the second batch I made. It’s amazing and the perfect snack or dessert.

Toasted Brown Sugar Coconut Popcorn


  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Gently toast the coconut flakes over medium heat in a medium to large pot (big enough for your popcorn with a lid). It should take 2-4 minutes.
  1. Remove the coconut and then add the coconut butter over medium heat. Once melted, stir in the brown sugar and popcorn.
  2. Cover and shake the pot constantly. This keeps the sugar from burning. When the popping has slowed to once every 2 to 3 seconds, remove the pot from the heat and continue to shake for a few minutes until the popping stops.
  3. Pour into a large bowl and season with salt. Toss in toasted coconut.
