Vegan Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Popcorn

I stayed away from all of the crazy black Friday stuff last weekend.  I really prefer to do most of my shopping online if I can since I hate crowds and chaos.  The only store I shopped at was Goodwill, and I was lucky enough to find 3 nice sweaters for $8 since they were having a sale.  When I got home I decided to listen to Christmas music and make some goodies.  I have baked a few Christmas cookies this week, but I also love Christmas cookie inspired desserts as well.  So I decided to make some snickerdoodle cookie dough popcorn.   If you follow my blog, then you know I like to make my own gourmet popcorn.  I have at least 10 different recipes for it on here.  I mean, I love just plain coconut oil popcorn with sea salt, but sometimes I like to make something a bit more exiting, usually something sweet.  I first started making them a few years back after I had visited a gourmet popcorn store when I was on vacation in another state to get some popcorn for Eric.  They had the most amazing sounding flavors. I love popcorn, too so I said to myself, I need to make some of these at home with healthier vegan ingredients! This past weekend I made Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough.

I consider snickerdoodle cookies Christmasy, so it was perfect!  I made the "dough" flavored base with Dastony coconut butter that I got from Raw Guru and smooth cashew butter.  It makes for a somewhat neutral but rich base that tastes like it could be cookie dough.  I added some maple sugar for sweetness, and cinnamon to make them snickerdoodle flavored and a touch of vanilla and the coating for the popcorn was super delicious!  It reminded me of cookie cookie dough and I could have sat there and ate it with a spoon but that would have defeated the purpose. So I tossed it with the popcorn and I was pretty excited about it!

It was super delicious, crunchy, sweet, a touch of sea salt and of course the warming cinnamon.  It tasted just like snickerdoodles!  I love cinnamon this time of the year, the scent of it makes me happy!  This popcorn is super addictive, I have to warn you, you may eat half the pan like I did before it even makes it into a bowl.  If you are a popcorn fan, definitely give this a try!  It would be perfect for sitting on the couch in your PJs with and munching on while watching one of those Holiday Hallmark movies.  Yes, I am an introverted nerd and I love that type of stuff!
