Ingredients

1/2 cupJOLLY TIME® Pop Corn Kernels
1 cupdried apricots
1/4 cupcashew butter
1/4 cupalmond milk
1/4 cupmaple syrup
2 tbspcoconut oil
2 tbspflaxseed meal
1 scoopvanilla protein powder
1 tspvanilla extract
pinchHimalayan salt

Directions

Pop the popcorn, remove any unpopped kernels and set aside.

In a food processor, process the dried apricots until they are finely chopped. Add the cashew butter, coconut oil, almond milk, maple syrup, salt and vanilla extract. Pulse until a liquefied paste forms. Add the protein powder, flax seed meal and 4 cups of popped popcorn. Pulse for 5 seconds until the popcorn just breaks down a bit.

Transfer the mixture to a large mixing bowl and with a spatula incorporate all the ingredients.

With your hands, break the remaining 2 cups of popcorn into finer pieces. This will take you just 5-10 seconds. Form balls with the popcorn mixture and dip into the broken popcorn pieces. Transfer popcorn balls to a plate and continue to form balls until you finish your mixture.

Store popcorn balls in your fridge for up to 2-3 days or in your freezer for up to a month.
