Chocolate Popcorn
Print Recipe
Once popped sprinkle with some melted coconut oil and cocoa powder. Or make it simple and add a touch pinch of sea salt. It’s delicious and so much cleaner than the store bought bags. As with all foods, the nutritional value of a microwave popcorn store bought bag depends on how it’s made. Regular butter-flavor popcorn made with partially hydrogenated oil provides about 132 calories, 1.8 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat — including 2.3 grams of trans fat — and 13 grams of carbohydrates per 3-cup serving. It’s also about 30 percent lower in fiber and has 90 times the sodium of the air-popped variety. 90 TIMES the sodium. Eeek! *Warning! Make sure your brown bag is not made from recycled paper. Some recycled paper contains metal fragments which may cause harm to your microwave!

Ingredients
  • 3 Tbsp Popcorn Kernels
  • 1 Paper Bag
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp Flavored spice of choice cinnamon, sea salt, or cocoa powder
Instructions
  1. If you have an air popper, use it to pop your corn! Then skip down to #5!
  2. If using a paper bag to pop, put 3 tablespoons of popcorn corn kernels into a brown paper bag.
  3. Roll down the top of the bag to seal it. Crease after two rolls.
  4. Use the “popcorn” cook setting on your microwave. Press start. When popping slows remove bag. It may not need to be in the microwave the entire cook time. This will keep it from burning.
  5. A it cools, melt your coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Sprinkle on top of popcorn. Coat well by mixing.
  6. Sprinkle on your seasoning of choice! Some of our favorites include: Cinnamon, Sea Salt and Pepper, and Cocoa Powder.
  7. *Warning! Make sure your brown bag is not made from recycled paper. Some recycled paper contains metal fragments which may cause harm to your microwave!
