Measure out popcorn and chopped almonds in a large bowl, stir, and set aside.

Place honey in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stir in almond butter, and let bubble for 1 minute. Turn off heat and stir in salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Carefully pour hot mixture over popcorn mixture and mix to thoroughly coat. Coat hands in nonstick spray or ghee and carefully form popcorn into 2- to 3-inch balls before the mixture cools. Store, covered, for up to 1 week.
