About the author


My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Cinnamon Spiced Popcorn Granola
Ingredients for 21 servings

Serving size: 1/3 cup
  • Dry
    • 56g (~7 cups) air popped popcorn
    • ~1 1/2 cups mixed raw nuts (I used cashews and pecans)
    • 1 cup sliced almonds
    • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Wet
    • 2/3 cup maple syrup or raw melted honey (or agave)
    • 1/4 cup avocado oil (or olive oil or coconut oil)
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 cup coconut sugar, tightly packed (or brown sugar)
  1. Set oven to 300F/149C.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Mix together the wet ingredients in a small bowl.  Pour the wet over the dry ingredients and gently fold everything together using a spatula.  Ensure every piece of the mix is coated.
  4. Evenly spread the mixture on a baking tray lined with parchment paper (or nonstick foil if you only have that).
  5. Bake in the oven for 25 – 30 minutes, removing it  from the oven and gently stirring EVERY 8 – 10 minutes (this is an important step).  Once it is golden, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 15 – 20 minutes to harden and crisp.  As it cools, you can sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over it for a sweet & salty treat!
