Save Money AND Eat Healthier with: Healthy Homemade Cracker Jacks

Low Calorie, High Protien “Cracker Jacks”
from 50 Ways to take the junk out of junk food by Julie Whittingham

7 cups air-popped popcorn (I cook mine on the stove top)
Salt to taste
1 cup peanuts
2 TBSP honey
3 TBSP light margarine
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350
2.Put popcorn in a large bowl and flavor it with salt. Mix in peanuts.
3.Put honey, margarine and cinnamon into a microwave safe container and microwave for 3o seconds.
4.Stir honey mixture and then pour over popcorn and peanuts. Coat well.
5.Spread popcorn evenly on a lightly oiled sheet pan.
Bake 12-14 minutes. Stir once while cooking.
6. Let cool 15 minutes before eating or storing in an airtight container.

**Notes: You may need to add a little more popcorn to achieve desired consistency. My picture shows about 8 cups of popcorn.

Would make a great snack in packed lunches 🙂
