Vegan Caramel Popcorn
Caramel corn is a lot easier to make than you might think. The sauce only needs 4 ingredients and it's naturally gluten-free. This recipe has soy-free and low-FODMAP options.
A note about baking soda: If you like chewy caramel popcorn, then you don't need the baking soda. If you prefer your caramel corn to be drier and crispy, then I recommend you add the baking soda to the caramel sauce once you take it off the heat after it has finished simmering. It might foam up a lot, so carefully stir in it to the sauce and then continue with the recipe. Remember a longer baking time will yield drier popcorn.
Since coconut sugar has not officially been tested for its FODMAP content, I can't give a definite low-FODMAP serving-size for this recipe. From my own experience, I think coconut sugar does contain FODMAPs. Therefore, you could substitute cane sugar for the coconut sugar if you are on a low-FODMAP diet. A 1 cup serving of this caramel popcorn using cane sugar is low-FODMAP.
This recipe is gluten-free.
Soy-free option: Use soy-free plant-based buttery spread.
