We all love popcorn I mean we should! And Kettle Corn is even better but did you know the average 1 cup serving of kettle corn has about 7 to 8 grams of added sugar and if it's was natural sugar it would be similar to a banana, but because it's the refined sugar we need to avoid it's more like a handful of gummy bears or a mini Snickers Bar.
Yea, I know! That's why I'm sharing this Healthy Kettle Corn Recipe today! Not only does it remove the fake refined sugars we should avoid but instead we use Maple Syrup!
Maple Syrup is most definitely a sweetener so I would not suggest consuming large quantities but if you're looking for something SWEET, substituting sugar for Maple Syrup is always a better option!
Because Maple Sugar actually contains some nutrients. In just two tablespoons you get quite a bit of:
the mineral manganese
the B vitamin riboflavin
small amounts of the minerals calcium, potassium, and zinc.
And if you opt for PURE maple syrup it contains antioxidants. Remember we need and love ANTIOXIDANTS because these substances may protect our cells against free radicals, which may play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases.
