Add the oats, chia seeds, and cinnamon to a large bowl and mix well.

Smash the dates in a bowl and then mix with the applesauce to make it a thick liquid. Add to the popcorn and then, if you are willing, put on a pair of gloves and then mix the ingredients with your hands. This will help to make sure that the date mixture is covering each piece of popcorn.

Substitutions
Add any other types of seeds or use agave instead of dates and applesauce. You can also add dried cranberries or other types of low-fat fruits.
